Anklepants aka Reecard Farché
Recent additions to the ever mutating Anklepants Live show Have been the custom mic/ controller “facé control wün"
The Mic instrument Is mainly used to Modulate voice processing with 16 buttons and 8 axis of jotstick control + Accelerometer , Where x-y position of the mic is also used to modulate and automate voice / track effects , multi track voice looping and all kinds of sample manipulation ,these gestures can also be recorded and recalled , and routed to various destinations.
The controller also has buttons that purely route information from the accelerometer (in the left hand of the suit) to control the xy postion of the animatronic facé.
and also to activate voice control of the animatronics and to activate the (in the left hand of the suit) accelerometer to modulate other voice effects , combinations of all of these are also available.
These gestures can also be recorded and recalled , and routed to various destinations to create automated modulations.
All this is done with the use of multiple max/msp m4l patches.
xbee , atmega and custom terminal application , and also hacked generic wireless mic rf transmitter receiver , custom animatronics and creature fabrication.
