Systems for Violin

 
 

Transference

The newest iteration of my hybrid performance system is Transference. All sound processing modules have been ported into Max for Live and Live 10, with 8-channel output and extensive layers of updated digital signal processing. A sense a tangibility is created through a delicate temporal response.

Windowless

An improvisatory performance with my computational system, Windowless, which improves on previous implementations of the alto.glove system, especially its analysis and sound synthesis modules. Rapid machining dynamics are blended with slower textural accompaniment via live-recorded sound.
