STEEL TUNER


This performance was developed during an RnD with the Amoenus system at IKLECTIK, London, and performed on 26 June 2021 as part of the Amoenus showcase. An excerpt of the performance can be viewed below @16:03. Read the coverage on CLOT Mag.

A sheet of raw steel is used to create a semi-autonomous compositional system. The resonating frequencies from the metal are analysed by the machine and used to tune several FM synthesisers, these are played back onto the metal with a transducer and analysed again by the machine in a perpetual feedback. This piece uses a bespoke spatialiser which treats each speaker as an independent sound source, turning the 13.4 setup into a choir of speaker.
