I often think that time is as relative as the individualâ€™s perception of what is right and wrong. How is my experience of a minute different from yours? Through generative works I remove myself from the position as creator/composer and take on the role as observer. I find this truly fascinating; a shift between two roles that complement each other. The title is a commentary on this experience. A fusion of different positions and directions. I remove myself from the work, it defines itself. I can be critical as a listener, but I have no control over the transpirations over the next minutes. It becomes an Event Horizon.
Ricardo del Pozoâ€˜s audio-visual installation, â€œThe Singularity , explores generative processes and algorithmic composition. Through digital real-time based processes and spatialization techniques Ricardoâ€™s work seeks to address the formal aspects of sound and video; an exploration of their inherent qualities as artistic value. Through the use of generative strategies he consciously manipulates the recorded materialsâ€™ inherent formal characteristics, and redefines these as music through constructed environments. The self-generative musical work aims to dissolve the perception of time and deconstruct the experience of the physical room the listener
How was MAX used?
In this project I used Max 6 to control the random generation of sound. I made several modules with the Jamoma framework which controlled pitch, eq, tonality and reverb. In addition I used ViMiC which is a spatialization technique encapsulated with the Jamoma framework for Max. With this I could control the virtual sound source in a virtual 3D space with random operator made with Max. I used 16 speaker. I also used OpenGL and Max 6 to control realtime video effects on snippets of video which was chosen at random. All the modules I have used can be found on github. I have also used tap.tools objects in some of these modules. All sound, video and effects are done in Max 6
