First, electronic music pioneer Pauline Oliveros was also performing in the piece. She performed electric accordeon and live electronics, a great combination.
Second, the performance took place in the magnificent foyer of the new Oslo opera house. Even if it is a large space, we managed to fill it up with all the different stations, equipment and instruments.
Third, I got the chance to test my video analysis system in a large space. I placed a Logitech webcam on the balcony approximately 7 meters above the floor. The camera was connected to two 5 meter USB extension cables, and still worked surprisingly well!
I had 5 speakers placed on the floor along the ceiling. Originally, I thought about using speakers stands, but considering the beautiful wooden wall they were placed in front of, I thought it was more visually pleasing to put them on the floor.
I used a slightly modified version of the patch I have been working on with artistic research fellow Victoria Johnson, and we both moved in the space, controlling various bell and water sounds that were recorded for the piece.
