testing reactive floor

Mar 14, 2021

Testing a prototype floor/touch board, to use with dancers in a future project I’ll expand this to a 5’x8′ floor with at least 2 piezos to drive Max/MSP, and possibly run multichannel audio out in 8 wood resonators. It should be pretty fun and engaging both to use and watch/listen. …hopefully sometime in a not too distant future : ) …with the blippoo box...

TDU/XLAB non è una composizione musicale, un’opera d’arte, o un oggetto. TDU/XLAB è uno spazio per un pensiero sonoro: dialoghi attraverso e all’interno del suono, dell’immaginazione e del gioco. L’ensemble strumentale è guidato in un processo di co-creazione sulla base di esplorazioni di oggetti sonori (acustici e elettronici), tessiture, rumori, timbri, spazi, silenzi e risonanze. TDU/XLAB scaturisce quindi da energie individuali e collettive e...

In that tension, express and...

I have always been attracted by and worked in my compositions for any kind of balance between the politics of the code (the score) and the reality of sound making, its specific context and mobile nature. While continuing the reflection on these aspects of my compositional practices I wish to create works, which could reach a musical energy identified and mostly produced by the...
