All Hail the Dawn by Alexander Dupuis

An interactive audiovisual feedback loop forms the basis of All Hail the Dawn. The instrument contains two simple light-sensitive oscillators. A crude spectral analysis in Max/MSP is used to filter the oscillators as well as looped buffers recorded from the instrument. A matrix of the spectral analysis, interactively altered in Jitter using audio data, is projected back onto the instrument and performer as a series of shifting patterns. This setup allows both the graphics and sound to drive each other, creating an evolving audiovisual relationship sensitive to slight changes in position, sound or processing. [1]



Stockhausen’s Solo Performed by Robert Hoit

Performed by Robert Hoit in the IV Festival de Musica Contemporanae in April 2011. This piece uses MAX/MSP to perform a series of loops of differing lengths. In the performance there were several minor problems. [1]



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.

Brainstorming by Sameh Al Tawil

I’ve created my own system based on WII remotes, Max Msp, Osculator and FM8 in order to translate my drawings into Sound, every line or shape has its own frequency, I believe that, the power of thinking contains a lot of visuals, music, motion and much more in it,
on this performance I’ve been trying to perform a brainstorming session
by writing, drawing, painting on a whiteboard and play music at the same time using a marker(attached to a Wii remote ) [1]
