An ongoing collaborative project with Nate Chivers, a Manchester based composer. Feedback Loophole is an experimental audiovisual performance. It utilizes software to provide a platform where sound and image can coexist and interact.
Chivers improvises music while the software reacts, offering a visual interpretation of the sound. Noticing patterns, modifications in the performance are made based on the visual feedback, thus creating a conversation, an interplay, a feedback loop.
Finally, I control the parameters of the program live, making myself the second performer. As a result an audiovisual jam session forms, blending up the two mediums and letting them play together.
The program is made using Processing and the Minim library. It is, as all proper creative coding projects, an amalgam of lots of other people’s projects, code snippets and advice. So credits go to the wonderful Processing community and Alex Russel, who tutored me when this was just a simple drawing program.
