I am working on a piece for violin and electronics. I want to be able to harmonize the violin with a basic harmonizer (or transposer.) What I want to do though is build the harmony up over time which will require multiple harmonizers (not too big of deal I do not think.) But the main thrust is that I want the harmony to change with each pitch. So for example if I have a passage of sixteenth notes I want each note to carry its own harmony i.e. the first note may be harmonized with a single note while the second is harmonized with 5. Does that make sense?
My thought with this was to send the desired transposition to a particular harmonizer(s).
To get the correct transposition though I need to know that pitch data coming in. For this I was thinking fiddle~ or pitch~ neither of which I have worked with to a great deal. I am concerned about portability with them. My question is is there another work around such as using signal strength or some other technique or this the best way to come at this?
