Rodolfo Vieira and Chris Mercer present Solo Violin and the Acousmatic String Orchestra: Gesturally varied solo violin material is processed to create a wide array of accompanying ensemble and orchestral textures. Signal processing techniques include: Dynamic transposition of spectral bands, mass harmonization with variable turbulence, granulation (hundreds of voices) that combines manual control with control derived from spectral analysis, and cross-synthesis with pre-recorded string material. Signal processing is controlled via multiple iPads and the resulting output is spatialized in eight channels using wave field synthesis.
