Madeleine Shapiro, cello, Dan Hosken, sound and interactive programming

Initially, the sound of the cello is processed in realtime and portions of the performance are captured for later use. At the piece goes on, the captured portions are layered on top of the processed cello and controlled by the cellist's movements. Video from a camera trained on the cellist is analyzed in realtime and used to control the captured sound using Max/MSP/Jitter. At the end the cellist puts her instrument aside entirely and controls her own sounds with her body movement.
