  • This face was designed for use specifically with a ChucK composition called "On the Floor" by Scott Smallwood for PLOrk (visit concert).

  • This face shows three large spheres. They represent the dials on a slot machine.

  • There is also a stack of see thirty yellow disks, or coins, in the lower right corner of the window. These represent your money. To their left is a large number in brackets. This tells you how many coins you have left.

  • You can bet one, two, or three coins at a time, by pressing 1, 2, or 3 in the command line area at the bottom of your Audicle window.

  • Each time you bet, the sound of a slot machine will play, and the spheres will rotate around one another and the background will flash different colors (see images above).

  • You will have the chance of wining more money with each bet. The idea is for multiple users to "gamble" at the same time, thereby creating the soundscape of a casino floor, with dozens of slot machines each playing their music. When you are all out of coins, a tone will slowly fade in and play until the program is haulted. Oh yeah, skot can surveil you via the network and tweak yer odds, to make sure the house stay profitable and also so the piece ends at some point.
