Project Focus: Ashley Fure's Anima

    Here's a look at composer Ashley Fure's 2017 composition Anima, for augmented string quartet, performed by the Amaranth Quartet (Emily Botel: violin, Abigail Shiman: violin, Julie Michael: viola, Helen Newby: cello). It's a fascinating example of Max in action.
    I wanted to mess around with that system a little bit, and see if I might be able to inject a little bit more volatility and chaos. - Ashley

      This is great, great take on the use of transducers and mic. Is there any way to hear the whole performance? Also: I miss Mills...dang.

      I LOVE THIS!!! I was raised by a violinist, and very soon discovered improvisation - playing piano, then trumpet, then in Boulder found Ussachevsky one summer - who insisted I create my first acousstimatic composition for a summer workshop - life has never burn better!!! I taught music for years, and still compose....

      Very cool– inventive, elegant, resourceful. What exactly is a "computer music designer?"

      In this case, the "computer music designers" are the Max programmers who worked with Ashley at IRCAM. You can be one, too!
