The Mixed Signals concert at the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder on April 25th was fantastic. Antidata (aka Wes Milhomen), Victoria Lundy (Theremin), and each played a 25 minute set. One of my favorite parts of the evening was our last song which was a collaborative jam (as seen in photo above taken by photo by Bret W. Moreland).

. Here is an ambient audio recording of the piece.

Here is a flickr album of I put together.

We had a great show and good turnout with an enthusiastic crowd :^) Here are a few photos.

First up, here is a shot of me playing my solo piece on the Octatrack sampler while simultaneously mixing visuals with live camera input.

Wow, the Mountain Oasis 2013 festival was simply epic! As I mentioned in a recent post, I was that there at the invitation of the Bob Moog Foundation. I brought my “9 Box” installation / instrument to be part of Dr. Bob’s Interactive Sonic Experience. In this post I’ll offer some photos and videos from my time at the fest.

9 Box as Part of Dr. Bob’s Interactive Sonic Experience

For those not familiar with the 9 Box, it’s part collaborative instrument, part interactive installation — the 9 Box allows up to six casual players to instantly make music and shape sound by manipulating blocks called AudioCubes.

AudioCubes, made by California based Percussa (http://www.percussa.us), are smart wireless cubes capable of sensing each other’s location and orientation as well as distance to your hands, fingers and other objects. They also emit feedback in the form of light as you interact with them.
Ultimately this hands-on approach allows players to manipulate sets of sounds in 3×3 grids — hence the name 9 Box. The 9 Box supports also supports user creatable “refills” allowing for unique and endless sonic possibilities.

So I devised the method, player’s guides and stickers, Percussa MIDI Bridge template, and Ableton Live templates and refill system.

SicImages was there and took this photo and made the comment

“These blocks were really something crazy. Infrared sensors and wireless proximity based effects manipulation into ableton….whatttt!”

The 9 Box ran for 18 hours over 3 days and was played by 100s of festival goers of all ages and went over really well.  This embedded video offers a taste of what it was like to be at the 9 Box section of the booth area. It was so rewarding see people’s reactions to the 9 Box and to hear their creations throughout the weekend.
