Artist Statement:


    Yoshio Machida’s piece Infini: The Speed of Light was composed by processing the sound of the Steel Pan with the Max/MSP audio software.

    The sound of the Steel Pan, which is performed by the artist, is often associated with “tight”. In Asia the instrument has long been a symbol of light, mainly because of its sub-division into differently tuned panels, which can be seen as similar to the construction of light from many different waves. In this piece, the sound of Steel Pan is processed and modulated by Max/MSP so that it becomes more ‘transparent’ than traditional sound. The sound will dance in the air freely, like light.
