No importan las etiquetas, ni las categorías. Tampoco los estilos o los géneros. Sólo interesa cómo suena y vemos nuestro entorno real, cómo se vive la cotidianeidad y nos comprometemos con el instante.

Local Landscapes es una creación visual y sonora en tiempo real, en la que los diversos elementos audiovisuales, musicales y lumínicos que operan simultáneamente son accionados e interrelacionados desde la pulsión intuitiva de artistas que integran M4cchinaensemble.

Never mind the labels or categories. Neither the styles or genres. Just interests how it sounds, and how we see our real environment, how we live everyday, and how the moment is committed.

Local Landscapes is an audiovisual creation in real time in which the various visual elements, video, lights and music, are driven simultaneously and interrelated from the intuitive instinct of the M4cchina ensemble artists. M4cchina is an ensemble formed by four interdisciplinary artists, with a well-known career in the fields of music, visual experimentation and musicological research.

Pere Vicalet, the youngest of the group, is a digital artist, composer and conductor with extensive experience in electronic music and interdisciplinary research. Josep Lluís Galiana, saxophonist, composer and improviser of international recognition, has shared the stage and recorded with important figures in free improvised music. Carlos D. Perales, composer, pianist and Doctor from the University of Valencia, has won numerous international awards in the fields of electroacoustic composition, sound research and human/computer interaction.

Local Landscapes is a real time performance where everything is interacting with everything. There are four local landscapes focused on each of the four musicians  of M4cchina ensemble.

The process of creativity is describing our real environment of culture of youth people who can be doing two, three, even four things at same time: they can speak by Whatsapp while they are watching TV and speaking with the persons who are next to the sofa. That’s the purpose of Local Landscapes. Each landscape is local, but also is interacting with the others at same time. The instruments for interacting are proximity sensors, Kinect Sensor, Leap Motion, piano, saxophone and computers. The result are a mixture of sounds, video and light changes also interacting in live (of course) to the public who is trying to decipher what is happening…

As it is said on the website of Cycling ’74, Max is used to connect all the sounds, the sensors and the electronic devices for performing in live interacting between them. There are computers processing sound from the piano, saxophones or the data from the sensors. Then, they are interrelated for creating new sounds, video, images and the lights. All is programmed with Max MSP Jitter, and also Max for Live, and Jitter in Max for Live.

Comments:

Maybe the most important thing is that we should have the stage for practicing almost one day before the performance. We can change our rider of lights and also video and adequate to yours just knowing what is going to be for program it at home, and then just check the day before that everything is working.

Also we should ask you maybe if we travel by airplane about having almost three MAC with the software needed and specifications for running our Max MSP Jitter Patches and Ableton Live.

Thank you very much.
