The stage performance is an allegory for a ritual of „counting the dead“ as told in the story of "The Counting Sisters" by Amar Kanwar, based on Indian folk tales, where six women (in an act of political resistance) collect information around people who recently died due to political „issues“.
„Die Hamletmaschine“ is a performance for voice and live-electronics.
THE MAX MAESTRO is an animated notation system for choir/ crowd of people, which was developed within the artistic research project VOICES OF UMEÅ by Anders Lind, composer, CD at the Department of Creative studies/ Umeå university/ Sweden.
This project is a software tool developed in Max/MSP that allows musical elements, specifically in the context of a live performance, to be controlled by human vocal input. This involves the simple real time processing and analysis of numerous aspects of a vocal input, and the use of it to control & perform a musical piece. This project does not involve the direct manipulation of vocals, but instead uses the human voice as a controller to manage functions in real time.
