The Architecture Sings
Performance: projected virtual space and amplified vocalization
9:16 aspect ratio
Duration of full piece: 17'17"
Performed May 5, 2013 at Art 6, Richmond VA.
Singing a semi-improvised composition into a microphone, the sound of my voice was amplified throughout the space while simultaneously being processed by the software Max/MSP. Using a self-made program, the data representing that sound was transmitted to the Unreal Engine, activating architectural nodes in the virtual space. By operating controls allowing me to manipulate the perspective of the virtual space, I was able to perform the virtual space as an integrated, multimedia instrument.
