Ken Greene is a postgraduate student in Trinity College Dublin, as a member of the NTRG under the supervision of Dr Linda Doyle. His main area of focus is mobile applications in (ad-hoc) networks and enjoys sitting for hours in front of a computer coding! Last year between, Autumn 2002 and Summer 2003 an Irish startup company called Forwind Mobile (www.forwind.net / www.forwindmobile.com) coded up a J2ME game (Fantasy Warrior) for the Finnish games publisher Sumea (www.sumea.com). I’m here to give a quick overview of the game and a the steps taken to bring it to life. The game is now available for download – it’s quite a quick play if your interested (we didn’t do the concept, just the coding, so don’t hold us responsible if you don’t like it:).
Musical Guest: Brian Cullen
Finished my degree in fine art in 2000 at NCAD. Had artistic leanings towards sound and video during my final year. Created low budget music (NO COMPUTER) for the two years following. Started my masters in music and media technology at trinity 2002 and still working at it! Trying to incorporate live sound with electronics to create music. Have played with live musicians and household objects usually bringing their sounds into Max/msp and abusing them in a whole manner of different ways. Hope to refine these techniques over the coming year.
