All the more my thoughts multiply

All the more my thoughts multiply is a work for flute, electroacoustic sound, and interactive video that explores the psychology and transformation of a lone character from the Noh play “Aoi-no-ue”, taken from the massive and influential 11th c. Japanese epic “Tale of Genji.” Possessiveness marks the greatest challenge to overcome. In this mono-drama the gestural significance of both the spatialized sound and the movements of the flutist weave together textures of light and music through an ancient Japanese folk story that asks: how do we navigate through our possessions?

This work is a commentary on the concept of “possession” as seen through an ancient Noh tale “Aoi-no-ue” (Lady Aoi), thought to be written by Zeami, sometime between 1363-1443. This story is based on an episode from theTales of Genji where Prince Genji’s mistress Lady Rokujo becomes furiously jealous of his wife Lady Aoi. Her jealous rage transforms into a “possession” such that Lady Rokujo’s living phantom spirit makes Lady Aoi mortally ill. The action in the Noh play focuses on the fight between the Shaman/Priest and the phantom spirit who is eventually exorcised and transforms Lady Rokujo.


diNMachine (Michael Schumacher and Nisi Jacobs)

The Audio Visual Matrix

An Interdisciplinary performance system commissioned by the Harvestworks Artist-in-Residence TEAM (Technology, Engineering, Art and Music) Lab

 

diNMachine will perform in eight-channel sound. It will be the first performance with the Audio Visual Matrix software diNMachine developed with Tommy Martinez in residency at Harvestworks. A short Q&A will follow.

 

The Audio Visual Matrix (AVM) is an interdisciplinary performance system that enables fast and flexible interconnections of audio and video data streams to modulate content. The inspiration comes from the “pin” type matrices found on synthesizers like the EMS Synthi, where players patch any modulation source to any destination. The AVM uses a similar grid system to create paths between elements (instruments, computers, cameras, etc.) and allows for feedback loops as well as typical modulation.
