New Material

I’ve been working on some material. One is a song called “Willow”. It is a simple guitar and vocal, but the guitar is treated via a Max/MSP system that reads the signal of the guitar, and maps various synth and effects parameters to pitch and amplitude. Using a Wiimote, it is also sensitive to the position the guitar is held.

The most recent piece is called “KafkaEsqueTest”. It is performed by typing a quote from Franz Kafka. The Max/MSP/Jitter system recognises particular words and vowel combinations, and creates sounds and image in response. Thanks so much to Sam Tarakajian and his Delicious Max Tutorial series. I didn’t recognise him at first but he was also at Code Control!
