    Practicing some Pat Metheny on the Eigenharp. Right now it's only the first part of Travels but trying to practice building up the different parts while playing. A couple of developments that make learning the eigenharp a lot easier. First is Eigentab which is a website for building chord charts for the different eigenharp models. http://www.eigentab.net/eigenTab.htm The second is the addition of key indicator lights that show roots, 3rds, 5ths, etc. Learning some Metheny is just an exercise in stretching my playing abilities.

      Striving for higher resolution electronic instruments to connect the player to the sound the old-fashioned way. This is a technical demonstration, meaning, I finished the technical coding, hooked it up, patched the simplest thing I could on the modular and started noodling. The way this works is that since EigenD (eigenharps platform) is now open source, we've (with the help of eigenlabs) been able to crack it open a bit for hacking. We now have an OSC agent which pumps an insane volume of raw data out of the harp ready for some experimental harvesting. In this demo, I have a MAX patch which sanitizes the data, and makes it expressly fit for translation to control voltage of a modular. Some data points here. EigenD sends 2000 events per control point per second. Per note there are 3 high res control points per note (pressure, yaw, pitch). So that is 6000 events per sec translated over the wire into voltage. 2 more control points require voltage which are pitch and cv. That means using an audio interface for cv, you need 5 audio outs per level of polyphony. 5 outs for monophonic, 10 outs for duophonic, and up. Luckily, monophonic is pretty amazing, duophonic is an incredible luxury and 3 levels is showing off. After I have prototyped this, I could see writing an EigenD agent expressly to do this directly, making the eigenharp modular friendly out of the box. I however have to mention that this would not be possible without Expert Sleepers Silent Way plugins as the OSC to CV bridge. Nor would it be possible without MAX in this prototype stage.

                Every since I saw the Alpha I wanted these two to meet but technical limitations in both eigenD and Kyma made it not ideal and there was more latency than I wanted. The latest version of eigenD and the latest Kyma support virtualized midi drivers and Kyma now sends Midi over OSC via an ethernet connection. This is a test of how responsive it is. I would say it's a resounding success! This is going to be too much fun. And it's extremely easy to setup as well. Turn them both on and go. This was recorded with the built in camera mic. The actual sound coming from Kyma is so realistic.

                  Holotronica's groundbreaking performance at Kinetica Art Fair 2010. For this performance 3D graphics, created with Quartz Composer and triggered in realtime by music played on an Eigenharp Pico and an Eigenharp Alpha, were projected onto the Musion Eyeliner holographic system. Stuart Warren-Hill was joined onstage by the very talented David Kemp from Eigenlabs, who played the Eigenharp Alpha during the performance.

                    Doing a cover with my Eigenharp Alpha. Two pass - acoustic guitar, then eigenharp doing keys. I'm sure someone is going to note that the guitar is played better, but been playing guitar for 30 years and Alpha for a handful of hours. It was fun to do and keys on the Alpha are the real deal. I can't wait till I don't have to look anymore. That will for sure come just like with any instrument.

                      After eight years in the making, the most revolutionary new musical instrument of the last 60 years has launched… Launching in October 2009, the Eigenharp Alpha - is a brand new instrument, the very first of its kind. Designed specifically for live performance, it is simply the most expressive electronic musical instrument ever made. Developed by British innovation company Eigenlabs, it redefines everything we have come to know about electronic instruments. With the Eigenharp, the musician can play and improvise using a limitless range of sounds with virtuoso skill. The Eigenharp can play and record loops, change key, transpose, alter tempo, program beats, switch and layer sounds, all while the musician is performing live on stage. LoopTV investigates this brave new world of intuitive performance controllers! Enjoy!
