Performance excerpt from Andrew Blanton's "Micr0plex and "Waveguide" performances for Soundwave ((7)) Architecture, a part of "Augmented Environments" on September 3rd, 2016 at Gray Area Theater.
Andrew Blanton presented two works for percussion and electronics focusing on ideas of expanded interactivity. His first work Micr0plex, uses 3D scanline synthesis to extract sound out of virtual 3D objects in real time. His second work Waveguide is an audio visual work that uses the internet as a resonant body. By sending data from drums to a server and back through the audience’s cell phones in real time, the work uses the array of cell phone speakers to create an immersive audio visual environment. The composition and software were developed by Andrew Blanton and the text was developed by Yvette Granata with special thanks to Neal Riley for technical support.
