Upcoming...SSSS! [Second Sexing Sound Symposium]. I'm participating in the concert that closes out the symposium on December 4th. I'm continuing on with my custom interactive modules for a piece called "sy5z3n_2". The module I made for sy5z3n_1 has been redesigned to include more mechanical components and to be a stand alone, running via microcontroller. Along with this redesign, a second sensor based module is being fabricated now which will be driven by a Max patch to produce sound, and a third thing is being torn apart and reconfigured by the end of the month. I've decided that these all work together under the label Instr/augments. There will be 3 of us "behaving" the live piece (yes, I still have a problem with the word "performing" as it pertains to my work) and we'll all be jacked in for the noisy meditation. Here are some process images from my studio. I'm on schedule to have all hardware fabricated by the end of September. October is reserved for composition and arrangement of the sound, November for rehearsals. Images L-R: (1) very organized soldered components, (2) testing, (3) new and sturdy solenoid sequencer design for mics, (4) the new design is expanded so two modules running off of one microcontroller are connected through the back, (5) the guts of seq_1/2, (6) the tops need to be fastened to the foam and they're done. Onto the next...
