nootherthanthevoid

/* A live coding audiovisual piece incorporating the use of sensors. The main limitation of live coding as a performance practice is the lack of responsiveness compared to other forms of musical expressions. During a performance of live coding, whether the musician is writing code from scratch or modifying pre-written code, it can take a rather long time for a new block of code to be executed, with a possibly significant gap between an idea arising, and it being manifested in sound. During the performance of nootherthanthevoid, with the aid of Electromyographic (EMG) sensors as well as pressure sensors attached to the laptop, the live coder is able to make immediate responses to the sound and control the sonic parameters while the visuals are being generated. The data from the devices is directed to some control buses in SuperCollider which can be used on- the-fly and flexibly mapped to any sound and visual parameters in performance.*/
