Blog Post #3

In our group meeting, we talked about live processing instruments. As I was looking for examples, I remembered a concert by Neil Rolnick that I attended a few years ago and starting checking out some of his work. This video helped me see some of the ways in which live processing can be used to introduce musical elements.

We discussed that we might want to use Max for some of the live processing. As I was looking for ideas and examples on what can be done with Max, I found Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead using it. This is an example of live processing that primarily deals with timbre, which is different than the Neil Rolnick example.

After checking out many examples of processing live instruments, I started to look for different ways of using tech along with live instruments to see some more variety. This is one of the fun examples I've found, which uses samples and beats in a piece that is performed on the piano.
