Foreign Tongues – Live Coded Visualisation for String Quartet.

Working in┬ácollaboration with instrumental composer Daniel Kidane (PhD candidate at the Guildhall School of Music, London) on his piece ‘Foreign Tongues’ for string quartet. I m producing a dynamic graphic score that utilises cross-media practice of visual computer code. Performing alongside musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) using a custom built program made with Processing. The direct live acoustic sound from a string quartet will control computer images to promote┬ásemiotic conventions of motion transformation. Used in a live concert setting the algorithm extends the limitations of sound representation and notation on screen. The dynamic interplay between sound and image is often descibed as ‘visual music’.
