crackleboxes





In my recent piece Self/Work and related improv performances, the Cracklebox is both heard as an analog instrument, and harnessed as a controller for digital sound. Performer(s) must touch two or more copper touch-points simultaneously for the analog instrument to sound. Max/MSP analyzes the incoming audio signal, and the analysis data are used to control synthesis parameters, signal processing configurations, and sample playback.
