The computer analyzes audio frequencies (live from a mic or from a recorded video clip) and generate musical scores, where instruments (human musicians or MIDI) perform the waves found therein.

Recently, the computer output has inspired further experimentation.

Migration - an ensemble of flute, guitar, cello, piano and percussion performs a clip of a noisy subway station. In this piece, a subset of pitches were hand-picked and the rhythms often composed by me, rather than solely by the software.

Happy Birthday, Mr. President - a live cellist is accompanied by a MIDI orchestra performing the audio of the broadcast of John F. Kennedy's birthday, where Marilyn Monroe sings to him. The music then accompanies the (silenced) effected visual aspect of the clip.

Crisis - a 6-part vocal ensemble performs the audio from an address given by Kennedy regarding the Cuban missile crisis. The overlapping lyrics are taken apart and reassembled segments of the transcript.

Unwinding the Earth - the audio is of my guitar playing live accompanied in real time by an internal virtual string 16 part string section.
