Twelve minute improvisation of computer music based on a week of practice at Yale Union. Speakers were placed in the center of the room, at least 13 feet from the nearest wall. A pair of Neumann KM 184 microphones were used at a distance of eight feet from each speaker to create a N.O.S. (spaced) stereo mic configuration. The audio session is made up of three stereo recordings of the performance played in the room along with the internal computer audio and mono channel of the camcorder. Key strokes were tracked using Elite Keylogger. The audio synthesis program used for the improvisation was designed in Max/MSP by Madalyn Merkey and has been in continuous development since 2012.
