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.
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
•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
Created the patches in Max/MSP Jitter & the controls in TouchOSC
Created these in After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop
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)
Lorena created the movements and mirroring style for this piece.
