DO YOU FEEL LOVE? (2010)

Singer/speaker and interactive electronics (MAX/MSP) (5’).

I envision this piece as somewhat of a cabaret for insane people. The performance goes like this: using a type of animation algorithm in MAX/MSP called biroids, I manipulate the appearance of an animated visualization which, in turn, alters the playback speed, filtering, and a number of other variables of live audio that I record during the performance. The original, fixed-media version of this piece alternated between a recording of Carole King (“Do you feeeel love?”) and one of my own (“Hello, f*cka, how you gonna do it todaaaay?). I usually subject the audience to whatever vocal improvisations come immediately to mind.
