Jul’ & Aug’ 2013
It finally (almost) works. At least, a pretend version of it. But not too many more hours of programming, wiring, drilling and writing before it’s actually ready for a Festival Near You. Here’s a short video, filmed by Daniel Roberts, who is a very kind gentleman.
This one sits somewhere between an instrument and installation, and the bulbs respond to a performer’s touch to trigger samples and scenes and themselves. This frantic slice is Pattern 2, which is one of a lot more patterns. What you can hear are chopped recordings – highly amplified – of the electrical circuitry that drives the system. More footage very soon; the whole thing will be done by the end of the summer. One hopes.
