Visit the Ninja Jamm website: ninjajamm.com Download from the app store: itunes.com/apps/ninjajamm “We believe there’s a need for a fun and super playable jamming app” said seeper Founder Evan Grant. Collaborating with Ninja Tune, home to Amon Tobin, Bonobo, Mr. Scruff and many others seeper have created an innovative app where songs are released in “Tunepacks”, a brand new format, which could change music distribution. When played within the app, each Tunepack gives the user access to over forty different elements of an original tune: beats, vocals, melodies, effects and more. The jammer can hit play, sit back and listen to the tune, or start using the intuitive interface to re-imagine the song as they desire by mixing, glitching, looping and re-timing, whilst applying effects and firing samples over the top. Unlike many other music apps, the Ninja Jamm experience is very hands-on and immediate, the human feel is key to the enjoyment. You can touch, tilt, shake and use multiple fingers and thumbs to Jamm and record, create a killer version of a favourite Ninja Tune and instantly share it with the world through Soundcloud, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. seeper built Ninja Jamm using open source libraries: The backend audio engine is built in ‘PureData’ and runs on mobile courtesy of ‘libpd’. The front end user interface is built in C++ using openFrameworks with the store developed in device native Objective-C. The main programming challenge was performance, getting PD and Ofws to run with the hardware available on a mobile. Working with loss- less audio meant bigger file sizes, however seeper balanced this against the quality and performance saved by not needing heavy decoding. “I’m into anything that invites people in.... I really like the app: it just says ‘Go have fun and if you’re enjoying it... dig deeper’” - Amon Tobin “I should take it to my show tonight and just play this... I’ve not seen anything like it.” – Bonobo

Can Iran Be a Potential U.S. Ally in the Middle East?Commonwealth Club - SF Club OfficeFormer U.S. ambassadors Luers and Dobbins, along with Lieutenant General Kearney, all members of The Iran Project, will provide unique insight into the prospects of reaching a diplomatic solution with Iran regarding its nuclear program, especially in this time of renewed negotiations and a belief on the part of the Obama administration that there is still time for a political solution. Drawing from decades of experience working with both Iranian and U.S. officials, The Iran Project recently released the second of three reports, “Weighing Benefits and Costs of International Sanctions Against Iran.” The first report, “Weighing Benefits and Costs of Military Action Against Iran,” was released earlier this fall; the third is anticipated early in 2013. These reports present objective, nonpartisan, fact-based analyses designed to serve as a basis for an informed public discussion and have received prominent coverage. The Iran Project is composed of seven core members and an impressive and unprecedented list of 50 "validators," including military leaders, national security and foreign-policy experts, and former officials, who are working together to bring a nonpartisan perspective to this critical issue.

Piero della Francesca: Incorporating the Home into ArtThe Frick Collection - The Frick CollectionDuring the early Renaissance, Piero della Francesca's artistic talents were highly sought after by patrons across the Italian peninsula but nowhere more so than in his hometown of Borgo San Sepolcro. This lecture will explore how Piero gradually transformed the art of painting by applying his pioneering pictorial imagination to the challenge of three gothic polyptychs and by introducing Renaissance format paintings into the domestic interior with his Virgin and Child Enthroned with Four Angels (featured in the exhibition) and Nativity of Christ (The National Gallery, London). The latter work will be discussed in the context of architectural and pictorial decoration designed by Piero for his family's private palazzo.
