ALLINAIRE Live - Good Space Block Party (Monome Norns + ARC + Zoia + Bluebox)

video by Allinaire

"Reconstructed Live Video from the Good Space Block Party (29th May 2021, The Rocks, Sydney). Using Monome Norns with ARC controller & 16n Faderbank giving Granular control of several sound sources.
1010 Bluebox is used as the mixer and is streaming field recordings of ocean waves, wind, bells, sticks and other assorted noises being processed via Empress Effects ZOIA through a custom Granular and Ring Mod patch and Bluebox's own effects and filters - using a Zone K2 Midi Controller fully mapped to Bluebox and ZOIA.

The track is an extended, modified and live version of my track 'Nrem REM' from the Album 'Heiro' available on Bandcamp:

Note: This video is reconstructed from 2 takes. About half way through the live set on the night the 1010 Bluebox froze and became unresponsive (most likely due to a power issue - working with Aaron of 1010 now to sort out the issue) meaning all the mixing, half the field recording and audio sources with all internal effects, and the effect send to Zoia were unavailable. Rather than stop completely I was forced to carry on with what was still working which changed the final outcome completely. Obviously very disapointing but it just shows that gear failures can happen anytime - I'll need to reconsider some gear choices and power sources due to this issue.

For the purposes of completeness I decided to use an earlier live rehearsal recording to add back the 'missing' pieces by splicing it in about half way - so the video is not fully 'live' in that regard. The first half has also been edited in a couple of places to make this a shorter video. I've tried to match the video to the correct audio but a couple of inconsistencies may be evident.

I'd like to thank VJ 'ATTM' for the excellent Live video projection and live video feed and the amazing Luke Snarl for facilitating this part of the Good Space event and running the sound. Thanks to Good Space for hosting the event.
