Project title
Hybrid Performance System
Project description

I plan to develop a hybrid analog/digital feedback live performance system. Live signals from modular synths, hacked instruments, CV controlled variable speed tape players and live instrumentalists are sent into software created in the MaxMSP programming language. These signals are processed digitally and then fed back out into the modular synth for further processing. Tactile controllers will be built using OSC, as well as hardware devices utilizing sensors for finger pressure as touch control. This system will be what I will use to improvise with, to compose and perform with and to create long form installation pieces.
