The Bends Collective

The Bends Collective was born out of a 10 week project in early 2011 as part of the Sound Design MSc at The University of Edinburgh.

The project focussed on circuit bending, and hardware hacking. The group learned how to modify various electronic devices ranging from cheap kids toys to a Nintendo Entertainment System. With their army of circuit bent instruments, they performed a concert in front of a live audience in March 2011.

In this video, you will see the army at work! Many devices were hacked in various ways, producing crazy sound textures far superior to that of their original output. They were all fitted with output jacks so that they could be played through amplifiers or loudspeakers. The instruments were fed into a Max/MSP patch which quadraphonically panned the audio around 4 loudspeakers which surrounded the audience.



Live Animated Orchestra

Live performance of the Live Animated Orchestra recorded in April, 2009 in Paris. Based on the story of the Queen of Sheba, Makeda vs. Salomon is an experimental animated movie specially created for the music set of Arat Kilo (an ethiopian jazz band). It was originally performed in the parisian Art Gallery “Espace Brochage Express”.

The Live Animated Orchestra was originally formed in August 2008 to create the “Tattoo me!” performance (coming soon). While developping this project, It appeared very shortly that vjing was a great field of experiment for the trio. It is called Orchestra, because like musicians, the performers always have to improvise and play with their own feelings and hearts to achieve the impredicitible challenge of creating a live animated shortfilm.

Live Animated Orchestra is: Marie Anne Bacquet, Stephanie Cadoret and Aurelia Vuillermoz
Based on a MAx/msp patch created by Stephanie Cadoret [1]

Robert Wechsler, dancer/choreographer, Dan Hosken, sound and interactive sound programming. The video from a camera focused on the dancer is analyzed in realtime by the program EyeCon and that motion data is passed to another computer where it is used to control sound using the program Max/MSP.

Agnes Heginger and Karlheinz Essl – Into the Blue

The vocalist Agnes Heginger and the composer Karlheinz Essl have recently been performing a series of interesting improvisatory electroacoustic gigs called Out of the Blue (or some variation thereof).

Vocalist Agnes Heginger and composer Karlheinz Essl playing a free improvisation gig which took place at the atelier of the artists Johann Feilacher and Sylvia Kummer. All pieces were created without any agreement in realtime: out of the blue – into the blue…

Karlheinz was performing on his his self-developed realtime composition environment m@zeĀ°2 written in MaxMSP, whereas Agnes was utilizing poems by Ingeborg Bachmann and Joachim Ringelnatz. For the first time, Karlheinz was playing on a wooden sound sculpture created by Johann Feilacher which he was mauling with a variety of percussion beaters and a custom-made MaxMSP program for controlling the processing of the microphoned sounds in realtime. [1]

Vocalist Agnes Heginger singing a solo performance with herself using a canon generator written by composer Karlheinz Essl in MaxMSP. Her piece is based on a poem by Joachim Ringelnatz (“Gedicht in Bi-Sprache”) and was performed at the atelier of the artists Johann Feilacher and Sylvia Kummer. [2]



Karlheinz Essl performs his composition “non Sequitur” on a sound sculpture created for him by the Austrian artist Johann Feilacher. Karlheinz uses a variety of percussion beaters and a custom-made MaxMSP program for controlling the processing of the microphoned sounds in realtime. [3]
