Audio~Vision

AudioVision is a project composed for electric guitar and laptop, with audio reactive generative images.
It was composed for Fundació Joan Miró and was presented during the series of concerts called “Mùsiques d’avui”, which is based in a format workshop-concert for students of schools situated in Barcelona, in a range of ages between 12-18 years old.
This project pretends to show some techniques about how to compose music assisted by the computer. During one hour, four electronic pieces and some examples of interactive installations shows different methods and approximations playing guitar loops using the computer. It generates artificial sounds as well, but always generated and controlled by the guitar.

The sound is controlled by one laptop under MaxMsp while graphics were controlled by a second laptop using OpenFrameworks.

Audio~Visión es un proyecto audiovisual compuesto para guitarra y electrónica, con imágenes generativas y reactivas al audio.

Fue compuesto para la Fundación Joan Miró y se presentó durante los ciclos de conciertos “Músiques d’avui”, el cual se basa en un concierto-taller para alumnos de colegios de Barcelona entre los 12-18 años de edad.

Este proyecto es una aproximación a la composición musical asistida por ordenador, donde por medio de cuatro piezas electrónicas y ejemplos de instalaciones interactivas, mostraba a los alumnos diferentes técnicas y métodos para componer en vivo, mezclando sonidos grabados y sonidos generados usando la guitarra eléctrica como fuente sonora.

Como palabras claves: Improvisación, grabación por capas, loops, texturas, densidades, formas.
