Diamond in the rough (Bathhouse)

Diamond in the rough (The Bathhouse) | Live Electronic Performance project

Inspiration:

Inspired by Dr. Ben Freeth’s work (Decoded in discovery museum). Ben advised me to combine Arduino and Puredata together to have some fun.

Design:

Bathhouse in Miyazaki’s best film Spirited Away is the place to start. The place for gods to come and take a bath. Place where spirits meet. This led me to the decision to use the fog maker (inspired by Ben).

A design in small aquarium is the result of this approach. Aquarium gravel and rocks are the main needed materials for the mystic view design. Combing with simple chords writing from logic pro, I designed a simple music box with carton and letter envelopes, then covered the theme song from the film.

Techniques:

Simply testing with sound data sending from Arduino to Puredata. Use all fresh skills I learned from Professor John Bowers’s live electronic performance module and Dr. Tom Schofield’s Arduino sessions.

First try for a composition using Logic Pro. By listening back to the hobby play, my first experience is that we can produce pretty much any instruments we like from playing just one piano.

But, there’s an exception that it is difficult to synthesise the violin’s vibrato by using such a music production software, which Logic Pro is my case. The only natural recording I had is the piano.

So for natural violin’s vibrato? It is obviously better to play a real acoustic violin.

Because a successful orchestra composition has to be perfect for every single individual instrument, this version of mine is considered to be a failed one because I of the artificial string instruments’ sounds.

If you know any entrepreneur out there who makes natural vibrato music production software, please let me know.

Definitely try it again next time with a real fiddle.
