Here is a video of the piece Higher Order Gestalt Fromage for two soprano T-Sticks and 24 channel loudspeaker array, composed and performed by blablaTrains (Ana Dall’Ara-Majek and Takuto Fukuda). The piece was premiered in the live@CIRMMT concert series on 13 February 2020 at Music and Multimedia Room (MMR) at McGill University.
I love the way they played with the relationships between gesture and sound! Unfortunately those of who could attend in-person have to imagine the spatialization aspect of the performance since it can’t come across in the stereo audio here.
The Input Devices and Music Interaction Lab has uploaded videos from a concert held in February 2020, in which participating composers from the CIRMMT T-Stick Music Creation Workshop presented their new works. The videos linked below show some of their amazing variety, including installation-like pieces in which the T-Stick is fixed to a stand, works for dancers, laptop ensembles, and interactive visuals.
Here’s a video from way back in 2011 that I only recently noticed on YouTube. It features D. Andrew Stewart playing the T-Stick as instrumental soloist with laptop orchestras from Concordia and McMaster Universities.
The piece was co-composed by Eldad Tsabary (director of the Concordia Laptop Orchestra, CLOrk), D. Andrew Stewart (T-Stick) and David Ogborn (founder of McMaster University’s Cybernetic Orchestra).
