CS Quartet

(2011)

30' looping performance

custom electronics, openFrameworks application, modified video game engine, live projection, gamers, percussion musicians

A modified version of the CS:Source video game engine was programmed to output a visual score for a percussion quartet. A LAN party was hosted in a warehouse as both a concert and social sculpture in which gamers actions (footsteps, jumps, doors opening, damages, etc) were mapped to screens on music stands for a percussion ensemble, thereby creating a cybernetic feedback loop and entanglement of the real and virtual through actions, impacts, and sounds. The resulting visual and sonic experience modulated between order and chaos.
