about

Improvisos com um alto-falante alterado surgiu de duas necessidades que sentia há algum tempo e só agora começo a resolver. Em primeiro lugar, a necessidade de um set-up que permitisse trabalhar um gestual físico mais complexo que apenas lidar com teclas, knobs e faders em minhas performances. Em segundo, a vontade de simplificar meu set-up, dependendo cada vez menos de ferramentas hi-tech, sempre muito alinhadas à lógica da obsolescência programada. A alteração de um velho alto-falante descartado me pareceu uma ótima solução para saciar ambos.

Transformado em microfone, o alto-falante permite captar diferentes tipos de gestos físicos, vocalizações, além da retroalimentação gerada pela sala onde a performance é realizada. O material captado, filtrado fisicamente pelo diâmetro do alto-falante e pelo peso de sua membrana, é enviado para um patch que criei em PureData, onde realizo processos de atrasos, repetições e ressínteses. Tal ambiente foi criado para permitir certo nível de controle, mas sempre com algum grau de imprevisibilidade. Assim, cada performance é única.

Impromptus with a bent loudspeaker rose from two necessities i have been feeling for some time which now are beginning to get resolved. First the need to add more complex physical gestures in my performances than just keys, knobs and faders. Second the will to simplify my set-up so that I depend less on hi-tech tools, always conceived through planned obsolescence. Salvaging and bending an old discarded loudspeaker seemed the perfect solution for both needs.

Turned into a microphone, the loudspeaker allows capturing different types of gestures, vocalizations and the feedback of the room and the system where the performance takes place. The sound is physically filtered by the diameter of the loudspeaker and by the weight of its membrane and sent to a patch created in PureData, where the audio is processed in real time, through delay, repetitions and re-synthesis. Such environment was created to allow some level of control, but still with a great deal of unpredictability. Thus, each performance is unique.
