PET_00 - Interface Chill

Publié le par Dr Drak

Étrange Interface en Flash au design naïf. Elle produit des sons et des compositions très Chill Out. Vous pouvez soit loader des compositions déjà existantes , soit créer les vôtres et les sauvegarder (ça je n'ai pas testé). Cliquez sur Help si nécessaire.

PET_00 is the result of a collaboration between software artist Simon Yuill and composer Laura Baxter.

At the Paragon's invitation, Laura created 8 short and punchy electroacoustic works using a variety of starting materials, some supplied by us and some sourced by her. Simon subsequently created an innovative software interface that allows the user to re-form and re-create their own works from Laura's originals.

The original CD quality of the pieces has been lost due to the heavy compression necessary to enable quick loading on a 56k modem. However, much of the success of this project is due to the fact that Laura has ingeniously created 8 short works that can stand up to this kind of rough treatment.

The whole emphasis of PET Projects is on accessibility, enabling users - who may not have had that much of a chance or much encouragement to explore their own musical creativity - to start their explorations in sound from the same point as every other user.

Hint: Before embarking on creating your own new work from Laura's music, why not ask the interface to create a 'random' score for you, as a starting point. Alternatively, feel free to download a score saved by another user (both facilities are available within the interface). Then, armed with an idea of what has been achieved already, create your own! .

For a full description of how to use the interface, please visit the Help text once loading is complete.

Enjoy creating!
