Artist Statement:

    This is a part of a project called Invisible Objects that is now going on. This project is that by challenging myself, I try to create real sound, push the use of technology and content in a live situation to the limit and make interactive music with sound, sound resource and software. The most important thing is that all of the music is improvised and played in a solo format. All composition, Performance, Sound Restructure by Otani.


    Instruments: Computer Macintosh PowerBook 540C
    Software: IRCAM MAX for Macintosh
    Patches for improvisation made with MAX by myself
    Realtime play&sampling software developed on C++.
    Sampler: Ensoniq ASR-10


    When originally designed, MAX Patches was created for improvisation. It was for SOLO Play. It is now developing so that it will be used for Duet and with orchestra. Realtime play &sampling software can communicate Ensoniq sampler via SCSI. This uses sound resource on Macintosh. Access is simple and fast. It plays with a Macintosh keyboard. Each sound resource can set loop, reverse, pitch bend, and modulation.
