The Augmented Drum Kit - Frrriction EP

    MaxMSP is used to analyse the acoustic drum kit's incoming audio, extracting information such as onset attacks, density, envelopes and pitch (from cymbal bowing for example). The contact microphones and sensors are used to provide control data for gesture following, which is used to change the various module settings in a non-linear manner or to initiate different groups of modules. Methods for the electronic sound generation include concatenative and granular synthesis among other real-time sampling processes.
