Abstract:

  • Keywords: Interactive Art, Nam June Paik, Musique Concrète, Random Access, Max/MSP Jitter, Arduino

    Nam June Paik (1932-2006) exhibited the progressive music environment for audiences, Random Access (1963) in his first solo show. It allowed audiences to make their own sound collages by interacting with visual audiotapes on a white wall. This unusual music project was based on Paik’s musique concrète composing experiences. Studying the practical relationship between Random Access and musique concrète, Diligent Operator (2016) develops Paik’s idea of interactive collage music by employing Internet system to access a wide range of sound data all the world over. This new version of musique concrète was created with computer programming including Max/MSP Jitter and Arduino.
