Cyclopes

Cyclopes (2009)
Improvisation for Double Bass and live electronics

video


This is the second piece from the concert. Few mouths ago we try an experimental improvisation approach between Sebastiano Dessanay on double bass and me on live electronics. After that we realize that the outcome was good material and we decided to develop it further. Here is an extension of this collaboration with Sebastiano were the bass is taking the form of the Cyclops.

I am recording live, improvised fragments from the bass and then I am feeding the sounds back to the audience through a surround system. The recorded fragments are layered (up to three for now) and automatically looped and processed live through the Wii remote accelerometer that I am holding in my right hand. The surround distribution is controlled through a custom made sensor glove the I am wearing in my left hand.
