composing for the computer and Zoom
There are three primary factors that affect the performance of this work and the sonic environment, the performer is instructed to control three parameters, these are:
- The physical distance between the two devices (computers)
- Computer Volume level
- Computer Built-in Microphone level
After the maximum proximity (physical distance between the computers is achieved, repeat the same steps, freely choosing which commands to enter (copy and paste) into the Terminal window, but now slowly begin to move the computers further and further away from each other until they reach the starting positions, and as close to the edge of the table.
Caution: severe damage to computer speakers may occur; in order to avoid damaging the computer and the computer speakers (as well as human ears!), it is advised to start with a very low built-in microphone level on both devices and to also turn down the volume on both computers. Be extremely sensitive to the level of input and output, as the output will change depending on your specific computer model.
