Patrick K.-H. / Oleg Makarov, Room Sketch: CHESS interactive performance,
@ LifeStyle fest, Moscow, CHA (Central House of Artists), 21.04.2012 ev, set 1.
Room Sketch: Chess – multimedia performance, where sonic material is to be structured by chess play, in real time. Every performance result is unique, it comes out of dynamics and number of moves.
By web cam connected to Max/MSP patch, chess board is mapped with sound matrix to make a correlation and juxtaposition of certain sounds, utilizing chess game as a dynamic score for constantly changing sound plasma, turning watcher to listener, making playing process an engine for driving the score.
Each move, as well as each pause between the moves, is mapped with sound phrase and / or parameter of sound processing, finding its special path to the whole structure (4-8 channels), interacting with simultaneous moves or pauses processing.
