A structured sound improvisation

Till Bovermann, Chi-Hsia Lai (2011)

Improvising along an augmented score, the two artists perform with their very own multi-channel setups.

Chi-Hsia wears a custom-made wristwatch-like device, allowing her to control live electronic parameters by directional and positional information. Her percussive sounds are picked up with microphones, and processed in real-time.

Till plays Rob Hordijk’s Benjolin fed through Callum Goddard’s AutoSpatialisation, a probabilistic engine that controlles audio-rate spatialisation.
