  • 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.

  • Bow_o_Rama

      Bow_o_Rama born from the desire to create a simple application of intuitive music, a small sound object that can stimulate the desire of the listener to discover acoustic particles; the audience is not a mere spectator, but an active part of the creative process. The choice of my instrument, the viola da gamba, an emblem of the Baroque period and the instrument on which I decided to start a journey in searching new sounds and languages, is also related to the specific desire to give an acoustic sound texture to the audio. Each sample presented in Bow_o_Rama is uncompressed, aiff to 44.100/24 bit, in order to ensure to the listener an audio CD quality, in contrast to the compression of common downloadable digital formats. The application certainly is not perfect, I’m not a programmer but a musician, it's the first app that I did using MAX 6 and is a first step towards the desire to offer a new way to enjoy music and contemporary art.


  • T-billy 101 (TB 303 emulation)

    My personal emulation of the famous Roland  tb 303 totally built using MAX. I added some simple effects like reverb (using the tool nw.gverb~), tape delay and a bit crusher for a chance to work more on the waveforms and to make the best performance.
