Performance at DMU

On the 7th November I gave a performance as part of DeMontfort University’s MTI concert series. The interactive-generative piece for Launchpad is my first finished piece for my PhD work and is performed using custom software created in Max/MSP and Processing. Hardware used includes a Novation Launchpad and two Korg Nanokontrols.

The performer instigates and controls the level of note events represented by red squares moving across the grid. Control events are represented by green squares moving vertically. Pressing the pads causes them to turn yellow. Collisions between all these create further musical events. The overall aim is to create something beautiful that contains a satisfying blend of order and chaos. Video here.
