THE REPRISE

the RePrise aka Train Thoughts


Description of Project:

Collaborative performance with Lorena Delgado and Bing Huang, for our Digital Performance course [taught by Luke DuBois and Jamie Jewett.] We were required to create a performance without the computer being visible.

The Piece:
A reinterpretation of the daily commute and the thoughts that may arise. I wrote the narrative on the 6 train, interspersed with sounds of NYC Subway Transit and the following references:

  • Lucille Ball - I Love Lucy, 
  • Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools, 
  • Beyoncé - Drunk in Love, 
  • A Tribe Called Quest feat. Faith Evans - Stressed Out

Controls:
•The accelerometer in my Android phone controls the Audio (filters on the voice over track & quantized loops on the music track)
• A touchOsc interface on Bing's iPhone controls the fading-in/out of the two videos

Programming: 
Created the patches in Max/MSP Jitter & the controls in TouchOSC

Visuals:
Created these in After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop

Audio:
Created the music track in Ableton & the vocal track with a Zoom Recorder and GarageBand. Two tracks are layered on top of each other (see Controls for effects explanation)

Movement:
Lorena created the movements and mirroring style for this piece.
