(18a-18b) Web-mediated / dynamic cross sampling
Videos 18a and 18b are from the same moment but recorded at both ends of the transmission channel, demonstrating the different monitoring situation between performers.
Seed signal/first trigger (Otso) -> web streaming -> processing (Alejo) -> web streaming back -> processing (Otso)-> web streaming back -> etc..
Hardward + software
Otso: Korg midi controller -> Live (seed signal: drum machine click with random rhythm) -> Listento send/receive plug-in -> Alejo signal -> Live (sampling Alejo) -> etc..
Alejo: Reaper -> Listento receive plug-in -> Otso signal -> Three Sisters filter (All input)-> Erbe-verb reverb (input) - > Listento send plug-in -> etc..
Alejo - modulation:
Pressure Points (press out all) -> filter (v/8 Freq).
Pressure Points (set cv out) -> filter (span).
Otso and Alejo: Microsoft Teams -> web video call (audio and video).
How to document the situation? – the control gestures, parameters, interface
Mystery of the other’s setup, processes and gear. Is it important to know or follow?
Practice! New improvisation environment needs practice to be felt comfortable and satisfying.
The possibility to record Alejo brought a new level of listening and engagement to my playing. The session was very satisfactory and I felt it was the first time I experienced emotional engagement in music via web.
I liked Alejo’s modular sounds, they were inspirational, well defined in their sound (freq. resonance filter sound sounds very consistent, strong, potent)
Some clips – gain clipping or web bandwidth overflow?
Positive impression in general (since the beginning of the online sessions).
I Like the material which is unexpected – processing unexpected material is different situation from processing one’s own sound. The other person’s unexpected sound drives the playing – and it’s not a machine – it’s a person.
Very organic material gets generated.
Very good listening situation at home – good level & monitor system.
Resonant filter as extra sound source.
