The latest set from Uunolan Ukotus now on Archive.org
The live process I’ve build for many years is slowly taking the shape I’ve dreamt it to be. The phase now is to move the control elements from the computer to an external device. This is achieved with iPad and the wonderful infinitely customizable Lemur application. This in turn takes the live performance where it was before: in the music and sound creation.
The system still lacks the fluidity and elements to make it a seamless experience, but I feel more and more confident that this can actually work. I’ve had doubts many times, but the clouds are shifting.
It’s rather interesting that I cannot in any way foresee the frequencies that the system picks up, so I have to be acutely aware of what’s happening at the moment. It’s exhilarating that I’m not in total control and can only guide the process and progression to certain direction. On the other hand the music doesn’t have progression if I don’t do anything. Balancing myself somewhere in between makes me a listener and the creator at the same time. The system doesn’t let me go, and on the other hand it does if I do too.
