A test running four soundfiles through the processing and spatialisation patch for The Last Years - a work intended for four acoustic instruments. Players read from the score in the work, so in this test version the soundfiles don't correspond to the score - however the location of the coloured circles indicate the spatial position and processing effect.
Test for "The Last Years"
March 18th, 2013
Spatialisation Trajectory maps in the sound processing patch for "The Last Years". The coloured paths are accreted over the duration of the piece and show all of the movements made by the four planchets.
Recorded by Guy Fleming at The Guerilla Sessions 07 Jan 2013. The study is in two parts: the first - just feedback produced by the bass-clarinet with a microphone in its bell and controlled by lifting or depressing keys and the second the same process with the addition of some actual playing and processing by the max patch for my 2003 piece spectral transmission (originally for radio) conducting spectral analysis and rendering it as glissando-ing sine tones. The spectrogram above is an excerpt of part II.
a screenshot of one of the parts for resonance, manifestations - a draft at least - for whispering choir. the text is collaged from webpages found in a search for the phrase "Transit of Venus". At one point the text was to be part of my piece of that name (2010) and has been floating around ever since. the position of the text (in fact each letter [and space] is generated by the computer alternating between different behaviours/contours for example: step down, step up, leap down, leap up, remain etc - and gives a general indication of pitch. the score scrolls from right to left.
