Artist Statement:


    In Homage to Studio Vision Pro, Ollie Bown builds on his practice of live generative music performance that was developed during his collaborations with electronic music duo Icarus and in various electroacoustic improvisations. The title of the work refers to Studio Vision Pro, a digital audio workstation similar to Cubase and Logic, which has superior capacity for MIDI manipulations and a powerful audition tool that Icarus adapted for live performance. Studio Vision Pro was dropped in 1999 when their parent company Opcode was acquired by Gibson. This project is Bown’s simplified imitation of the powerful Studio Vision Pro audition tool, but with generative elements built in along the way.
