Between Realities

January 9, 2015 in Electronic, Music

For piano and fixed media electronics. Written for Jenny Q Chai, 2014.

The piano is both an extremely versatile instrument and a prisoner of its design. A masterful performer can create a multitude of colors and textures with it but, without significant modification, it is confined to a specific tuning. Between Realities is an exploration of this limitation, not as a negative, but as a way of traversing the space where two dissimilar tuning systems meet. It is a meditation on the concept of intonation.

Performed at Center for New Music (C4NM) in San Francisco, CA.

Live Coding Drones #3

October 15, 2013 in Electronic, Music

More tweaks to my live coding setup in vim. Trying out the motus color scheme. Using delimitMate for automatic enclosures, SuperTab for autocomplete, snipmate for snippet expansion. Also decided to try using keyCastr to display all my keystrokes.

Started out with a basic master effects synth and bussing setup. I have a routine spawning a one synth that I constantly tweak. Later I add in a simple band passed noise synth for a little variation while I keep messing with the other one. Pitches are all derived from the overtones of two ratios which I alter from time to time.

Live Coding Drones #2

October 11, 2013 in Electronic, Music

Practicing jumping around Vim to quickly edit parts of existing code. All code was pre-written with the intent that certain parts would be edited as things progressed.
