Sound performance, 30min
[Musical interface: Arduino + sensors, MAX/MSP ]
Created and performed with Ci-Ruei Li, Nei-Mei Wei, Ka-Ying Li, Yi-Fung Chen, Urška Aplinc, Garim Goh.
S+even is the musical result of 7 performers waiting. Each one is equiped with a sensor, related to a subtle boredom gesture, that send an impulse to the max/msp patch. Performers are not only playing one special sound but they also manipulate one parameter of the sound as the modulation, echo, speed of the music. Sitting as part of the audience, the performers’ waiting activity creates accidents, developments in the sound, coherence, discordance. The attentive audience has to observe around them to discover who’s performing.
