This is an experimental set I did at Phog Lounge in Windsor, ON. I had several piezo discs attached to an Arduino which was interfaced with Max/MSP/Jitter and then sent MIDI information to Logic in order to trigger VSTs live.

The piezo sensors were used to trigger a sequencer that chooses notes based on pressure. I would also select the quantization (1/16, 1/8, 1/32, etc.) in order to trigger sounds. Because the piezos were attached to wood, they're reaction to vibration was unpredictable, responding to various vibration and pressure, making the result be more improvisational.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
