Sound installation for Ableton Push

Sound installation for Ableton Push

The work explores the changes in sound quality that result from discord and tension in the overtones of multiphonics. Individual sound samples are treated like voices; even though specific gradients of sonic colors are outside of the participant’s control, the incidental texture creates layers of complex harmonies. Even though exact harmonies cannot be controlled by the participants, the varying texture of the triggered loops on the push gives the performer control of the direction and sonic density. More textural consistency is increased with the ‘reaction’ rate of the various sound samples.
