I thought it might be fun to use No Carrier's glitchNES as a tool to remix and control audio. I used a Max/MSP patch that I made quite a while ago to grab pixel colour data from 16 pixels across glitchNES' visual output. Each pixel sends its greyscale data as well as red, green and blue data as a MIDI control change value every 40 ms. This makes for 64 streams of MIDI data, which are then used to manipulate 16 copies of the same song, in terms of loop start point, loop length, filter frequency and volume. Let me know if you want a copy of the Max/MSP patch etc.
