Pd2Live – Introducing Chordophonics

The following video demonstrates the potential (spatio-temporal) chord configurations accessible through the application of polyphonic audio pick-up technology within the context of instrumental spatial music composition.

 

Tonal spatial morphology between D major and B minor 7. Common tones assume a static position at centre, whilst B is placed on the bass and assumes a dynamic spatial trajectory, courtesy of Eric Singer’s implementation of the “Boids” algorithm. The video includes binaural rendering of audio. Please use headphones in order to perceive a more accurate stereo image.

 

Tonal spatial morphology between E major 9 11 and G#m7b9/Ab (Locrain) minor #6. Common tones assume a static position at centre, whilst Ab and E are placed on the bass and assume dynamic spatial trajectories, courtesy of Eric Singer’s implementation of the “Boids” algorithm. The video includes binaural rendering of audio. Please use headphones in order to perceive a more accurate stereo image.

 

Tonal spatial morphology concerning the superimposition of a G7 and Bb7 chords, sharing common tones, D and F (minor 3rd) which assume a static spatial location at the central point within the performance space. Tones Bb and B are placed on the higher registers (root 1 and 2), tones G and Ab are placed on the lower registers (root 6 and 5) and assume dynamic spatial trajectories, courtesy of Eric Singer’s implementation of the “Boids” algorithm. Various tonalities result, modulating between spatio-temporal impressions of Bb Major (1st Inversion) Bb7, G7, G ALT 7, Bb Major (1st Inversion) and B Diminished (1st Inversion). The video includes binaural rendering of audio. Please use headphones in order to perceive a more accurate stereo image.
