This week’s post is the third of our three-part exploration of reverb, as applied to farts. This time around we’re using a Web Audio API extension for creating reverb nodes with an accompanying open-source impulse-response reverb library. An impulse is a short and loud audio event that is used for testing the response to sound…

Reverb FX: Part 2
This week’s post is essentially a reprint of our post of a couple of weeks ago, but using a different open source digital sound manipulator from Masashi Yoshikawa called Reverb.js. A far more elaborate & featureful tool, we have exposed all of the available parameters below, and included the same six farts from TwoTone to…
Following on from last week’s post concerning our attempt to approximate the experience of hearing a famous fart from different locations in an acoustic space, this week we’ve decided to continue this exploration by experimenting with an open source digital sound manipulator called Pizzicato.js. The following is from Pizzicato’s documentation: The reverb effect is similar…
A Trick of the Tail
It may come as no surprise to regular readers of this blog that Fart Maker remains one of the most visited pages & popular tools on the site. Not content to rest on our laurels and inspired by previous examinations of tailed farts we recently began experimenting with one of Fart Maker‘s stand-out features.
First we tried stacking farts to create new farts. Now we’ve tried sequencing them to achieve a similar effect. The result? Mission accomplished.
The Winds of Change
Here at the ICEF we’re always interested in asking new questions, experimenting with new techniques & technologies, and exploring new avenues of inquiry as we expand our ever-evolving understanding of farts. For example, we have extracted an enormous amount of value out of the Atmotube Plus from Atmotech Inc. In addition to measuring VOCs, the…
A Tail of Two Farts
Fart Maker is, by far, the most interesting tool we have created during our first year of experimentation. It is without shame that I can declare that members of the College spend, on average, approximately 10 hours per week creating original never-before-heard farts. Our primary interest (other than endlessly entertaining ourselves) is to try and…
Most of the world is connected through email, texting, and social media platforms. 97% of Americans own a cellphone of some kind. By some estimates, 5 billion people globally send and receive SMS messages. That’s about 65% of the world’s population and represents an enormous amount of digital communication, especially and increasingly amongst the young….
Long-time readers of this site are well aware of our Fart Browser – an interactive tool for exploring our complete database of farts and associated data. A recent addition of fresh content (including an appreciable contribution from our recently interviewed intern Cletus) has prompted us to put together a brief overview of the Fart Browser…
It’s Christmas Eve, 2020, and everyone here at the College would like to wish all of our readers (and listeners) a merry holiday season and happy new year.
