Orchestral Investigations

The Heart of Tones
composer: Pauline Oliveros (aka free noyes)
The Heart of Tones for SL-RL
This piece was originally composed for trombone and two oscillators, and commissioned by Abbie Conant and her Wired Goddess Project during her residency at Mills College in the Fall of 1999. The premiere of the piece was done at Mills College. This is an ensemble version of the piece adapted for SL-RL.
A tone is minutely explored in the smallest possible increments on, above and below the prescribed pitch, through the smallest timbre variations and spatial locations by three or more instruments. The pitch variations are never more than a half step away from the given pitch. The resultant beats, timbral shifts and audio illusions create rhythms, transformations and textures of depth. That focuses on acoustic beating caused by tones that are played very close together. The focus is on listening to the beat frequencies and the overtones that result. The musicians decide independently and intuitively on the variations.

interactive performance & play with avatars
This project will use an interactive interface which i'll perform with my body in relation with avatars in SL including layers of views like image of my body, sounds, live video by digital compositing with SL avatars.
For sounds i will work with recorded voices of the members of AOM in order to write a sketch with samples and talks for a live mixing of this material during performance.
I'm working around ideas of loops and different textures of voices, I'm asking questions about textures and also speaks about this illusion of texture too...
Double_skin is divided in two steps of development:
- first step is to build a HUD with a scenario and play with this HUD
- second step is to elaborate an interactive performance with this HUD transformed thus with body and avatars

composer: Jeremy Owen Turner (aka wirxli flimflam)
