Foreign Tongues – Live Coded Visualisation for String Quartet.

Working in collaboration 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 semiotic 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’.
