Notationer # 1 – 4

An installation for a 4 channel system of loudspeakers and papers. 4 pieces of tracing paper are mounted in front of loudspeakers. All sounds are created by the papers brought to live by movement of air. The various changes in air pressure are generated from the membranes of the loudspeakers, moving in very low frequencies of thoroughly constructed waveforms.

The musical form has 4 movements succeeding in an ever changing loop, in constant fluctuation and of variable duration. Each movement are structured by a pool of presets from which changes and interpolations are generated real-time by a custom made application that runs from a MacMini.

How did this project use Max?

The application controlling this piece was entirely build in Max 5.
