Recorded live at Blue Whale, Los Angeles, April 22 2010.
Live improvisation looped and manipulated using MaxMSP/Jitter. Circles represent sound captured by 3 microphones recording for 20, 24, and 30 sec (6:5:4 ratio like a major triad's frequencies). This pattern has a period of 120 seconds. The drawing patterns of the circles show which/when each microphone's recording is playing back. The first two periods (240 seconds) develop the sound through playback snippets based on the frequency ratios found in a I-IV-V harmonic scheme. After that the three loops play back in full. Panning, pitch, and volume are controlled in real time using a USB footpedal.
