Music – Ambience Project

This is an excerpt from a two hour performance at the Norwegian Academy of Music early 2011. Everyone in my live electronics class were placed all over the school, playing ambient music. I was in the canteen.

The whole session was improvised. I used only my computer running Ableton Live. I put the speakers by the wall which is made of different sized metal plates, they added some resonance to the music.

I sent all audio wirelessly to the speakers via my iPhone and an ad-hoc network. This gave the impression that I was not actually making the music and resulted in an interesting setting were people were reacting to the performance without knowing it was done live.
