Live@CIRMMT – Steven Schick

Steven Schick performing Chatter/Clatter at UCSD

Last Wednesday I was involved with another concert: Pieces for solo percussion and live electronics performed by UCSD’s Steven Schick. This amazing performance was part of the Live@CIRMMT performance series, and also has another connection to the IDMIL and me. One of the pieces performed was Chatter/Clatter, part of composer Roger ReynoldsSanctuary Project, which was initially workshopped in the IDMIL as part of a project exploring gesture control of sound spatialization. We developed a sensing system using piezo-electric contact microphones on the percussionist’s fingertips, a technique which is now used in the piece.

I also drove the computer for this performance, which was running software in Pure Data (pd) which handled  processing of the live sound and 12-channel sound spatialization.
