An interactive audiovisual feedback loop forms the basis of All Hail the Dawn. The instrument contains two simple light-sensitive oscillators. A crude spectral analysis in Max/MSP is used to filter the oscillators as well as looped buffers recorded from the instrument. A matrix of the spectral analysis, interactively altered in Jitter using audio data, is projected back onto the instrument and performer as a series of shifting patterns. This setup allows both the graphics and sound to drive each other, creating an evolving audiovisual relationship sensitive to slight changes in position, sound or processing.
