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.
VOICES OF UMEÅ: SINGING INSTRUMENTS! is an exhibition with a bunch of interactive instruments built from everyday objects, with the purpose of exploring experimental music composition through a playful and inspiring process.
AERO is a standalone Mac app, that uses airport flight time data to generate a musical score. The app downloads real-time flight data from four airports – Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) and Washington DC/Dulles (IAD) - and uses the data to generate a simple minimal musical score that is always-changing as the flight data is updated.
This work by composer/performer Matthew Goodheart for piano and autonomous viola and metal percussion was commissioned for the 2014 Arts Birthday Celebration in Prague, Czech Republic.
Terrors of the Breakfast Table is an interactive video installation by Tyler Tekatch, currently on view at the Art Gallery of Hamilton in Ontario, Canada, until May 25 2014.
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.
Handcrafted Ale for beer and computer Composer & performer: Eric Honour After my family, my two great loves in the world are music technology and high-quality beer.
There are uncountable number of commercial programs for sequencing and modulating sounds, but I think that the more interesting and unique are the home-made and self designed digital tools. Here we'd like to share an example of our way in the band to sequence music on stage or in studio.
In a world of "big-data," our community is often faced with having to create custom programs to handle an unpredictable number of controller data, processing, and routing to musical parameters.
Electric-Guitarists on stage, typically use very strong gestures and expressions, "heavy" sounds, and an ability to hold a long last solo.
This is a Bassnectar remix where I used a few of my favorite songs.
Abstract ALPHA is the codename of a series of audio-visual live performances planned for 2014. It involves sounds, visuals and algorithmic sequencing providing a unique experience for the audience in which sounds and visuals are melting into a dense, coherent and minimal artwork matter. From physical approach of the sound itself to the customized algorithmic sequencers controlled in real-time on stage, ALPHA a/v live performance explores sounds and visuals fields and how one is related to the other. ALPHA is designed to be experienced in electronic music and digital arts festival. Duration 1 hour Requirements - 1 HD video projector + 1 screen (minimum 4 meters base) - 1 stereo sound-system Artistic Research Bored by rigid sequencers and already-made sequences, Julien Bayle pushes the limit of electronic music live performance a step further by using his own software-sequencers on stage.
I'm often teaching Max6 & Max for Live frameworks and I decided to challenge myself and to write a short guide about Max for Live both in french and english. I had that idea during one of my latest course with a person and I made it! This is a self-published book usin leanpub.com platform.
OK so this was a project I worked on back in May 2010 and thought people might be interested.
ICARE IN SITU is an adaptation of the myth of Icarus from Ovid's Metamorphoses. It's a multimedia sculptural transcription of this myth, by Thomas Sillard. The Icarus story as an allegory of the various struggles that we must take to survive.
A rework of a Max for Live TB303 with added phasor and an extra waveform.
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.
MIND MUSIC is a performance, where an artist play through an EEG-headset (Emotiv-EPOC), software-instruments.
