This piece was originally played using a Yamaha DMP7 or DMP11, which applied effects and minimal spatialization to the instrumental parts. In late 2001 this was reimplemented using Pd for a performance at Cooper Union.
(See also the general performance instructions .)
The setup for 13 loops requires 5 microphones (placed close to the five instruments) and 4 speakers in a rectangle around the audience. The cues in the patch are simply clicked on by the computer operator. The cues should be marked in the score.
There are MIDI inputs for two banks of 8 faders each, which control direct and "transformed" levels of the five intstruments, and a global reverb level. These are mirrored on the main page of the patch.
It's possible to play soundfiles of the instrumental performances through the patch for testing purposes; however, the existing recordings can't be distributed here for copyright reasons.
