CalArts Performances

Here you can see some of the presentations that I’ve done throughout the past years spent at CalArts.

CYBORG

First performance of CYBORG at the accepted students concert. Lots of connectivity issues at the beginning but it happened!

Smashed Mirror

Smashed Mirror is a piece I performed in collaboration with singer Elsa Lund. The singer is singing a collection of pitches that are live sampled as she sings them. A custom made granular synth is processing the samples and using the MUSE headband for brainwaves detection, I mapped the different brain waves to different parameters of the granular synth.  This gives a live acoustic listening of the collection of pitches followed by a destruction of those sounds controlled by the performer’s brain. This performance was part of the Experimental Sound Practices concert.

Purple Static

Purple Static is an organized improvisation piece composed and performed by Nick Galang, Daniel Gonzalez and myself.

 

Evolving Harp

Harp & Charango electronic duo in collaboration with Sarah Rice.
