This video, via John Keston, is a sneak preview of Audiovisual Grain Machine – a app designed for audiovisual granular synthesis.
Here’s what he has to say about Audiovisual Grain Machine:
I designed this software to do audiovisual granular synthesis. It allows a performer to apply granular synthesis to sound and corresponding video using a touch interface such as MIRA (shown).
The audio and video are accurately synchronized creating uncanny effects. The software also has the capability to capture and repeat gestures so that the performer can accompany the projections with multiple layers and arrange compositions in a performance setting.
This demo granulates the voice and image of Lister Rossel. In addition I use analogue synthesizers to contrast the digital manipulations.
