Rehersal with Diemo Schwarz at BEK

March 9-13 I participated on a FTM workshop at Bek in Bergen led by Diemo Schwarz from Ircam. A very challenging but interesting workshop. FTM is an extension for Max/MSP and PureData providing a small and simple real-time object system and a set of optimized services. (http://ftm.ircam.fr/index.php/Main_Page) Towards the end of the workshop he also went through Gabor and CaraRT.  In Gabor I founded some really interested pre-programmed patches I want to try out. Friday 13.3 I played a concert at Landmark together with Diemo Schwarz. He first had a soloimprovisastion followed by our improvisation and then the soundartist James Webb performed. During the stay I also worked with Thomas Dahl creating some new soundscapes for our piece. He used some of his favourite filters and features in Ableton. I think we have some really interesting material now; I just have find time to work and develop sounds and practice with the midipedal.  I want the pedal for to feel like an extension of my instrument so every move become smooth and sensitive.
I also worked with videoartist Mattias with our realtimeimprovisation concept. He is now using a “box” to project on. It feels much more like a symbiotic connection between audio and visual when we both relate to the visual material on the box.
On March I rehearsed with Diemo Schwarz at Bek. It was really interesting. I hope I can put some sound out in a while.
