Live Production as a Musical Instrument.

the Akai APC40.

The Akai APC40 is a midi controller instrument that controls audio clips, effects and virtual instruments in a live setting.  The grid design of the instrument provides an angle to writing music that is very different from composing and performing on a traditional piano.  The buttons illuminate when they are actively playing an audio clip creating a choreographed light show to the music.

I recently opened a Sound Cloud account. You can check out my newest songs here.  My latest composition project is in collaboration with visual artist Rajeev Basu involving electronic works made entirely of alarm sounds called eep eep eep.  It’s a great challenge to make something beautiful out of sounds that are intended to warn humans of danger.  You can hear an abbreviated version of what I came up with below.
