Afternoon Dust

140201_1630 (water piece)

New piece arranged and performed in SuperCollider.

This piece is a demonstration of the Part-Aleatoric Sample Machine, a project I am working on to explore possible interfaces between human and non-human listening. In the PASM, a computer uses chance principles to select samples for playback and apply effects; a human performer decides how long each sample is played for, and also operates a simple sine wave oscillator.

The samples used in the piece were recorded at Linton Falls, North Yorkshire.

An archive containing the SuperCollider score and audio sample can be downloaded here.
