Premiére of Di Scipio's PULSE CODE (on wood)
Live performance: 10 Nov 2004 --
Presented by: AgostinoDiScipio
Ecole Alsacienne, 109 rue Notre Dame des Champs
Paris -- France

'PULSE CODE (on wood)' is a composition for wooden objects and adaptive signal processing (a complicated Kyma patch...). The premiére will be played by percussionist Roland Auzet. Auzet will play any wooden board found in the concert hall (could be the stage itself, if wooden), and 5 wood-blocks. Di Scipio plans on further works also called PULSE CODE, but 'on glass', 'on metal' and 'on paper'. The technological infrastructure should remain the same: the percussion part is conceived as an 'sound instruction code' (or 'sonic punch card'...). Features in the percussion performance(pulse rate, density of rolls, amplitude changes) set the computer's internal control variables, in a kind of 'sound-specific' approach to real-time DSP transformations: a change in the input sound determines a change in the way that sound will be processed. Also, in turn the percussionist has instructions to change his own playing nuances, depending on the computer sound output: a feedback loop is established (in the sub-audio domain), which implements a tight purely sonic interaction between performer and computer. In the same concert, Roland Auzet also plays music by Gerard Pape and Sinan Bokesoy.
