Magnificat Ex Machina - 1. Magnificat
for live electronics
written in Max/MSP 4.8
SOUND CLIP COMING SOON!
Created for Chris Mercer's "Composing with Computers" course at Northwestern University. This Max/MSP patch takes any audio file and performs a continuous large-scale granulation to the file; however, the grains remain in time with a master clock which creates a much more rhythmic structure. Each performance is unique. In this particular performance the master clock gradually increases tempo. The sound file is taken from Montiverdi's Magnificat, movement 1, performed by Bach Collegium Japan.
