Allinaire Live: Monome Norns/Fates + ARC. Granular Synthesis. New Atlantis

video by Allinaire

"Monome Norns / Fates controlled by ARC and Faderbank. Live performance at 'New Atlantis, Artists Edition' at the Io Myer Theatre at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. Recorded 6th March 2021.
Testing the Quadraphonic sound stage at the theatre, this event featured several NSW modular and sound artists.
Huge thanks to Adam Hulbert of UNSW and New Sound Waves for organising and facilitating the event.
Video Synthesis and projection mapping onto the 4 screen panels by Adam Hulbert and Simon Trevaks (with Luke S Dearnley operating Vidiot during my set).
Quadraphonc sound in the Theatre but only stereo on this video - still some good sound panning and movement best heard on quality headphones or speakers.
Norns / Fates features several reels of material including field recordings of underwater audio from the Great Barrier reef off Carins QLD, percussion extracts from my Asalt studio piece & various Norns apps pieces and percussion.
Using Norns App ASH/ ANGL the ARC controls the pitch and speed in a high precision granular manner and Faderbank adjusts various other parameters.
4 Granular 'tape heads' are available concurrently and I swap out 'sound reels' during the performance.
The performance is basically made 'on the fly', by ear, by granularising the sounds into tiny pieces and adjusting parametaers to mix, smear, pan and resize & overlap grains.
Picked up some radio interference towards the end as well!
Thanks for watching."
