Featured Work: Variations II for solo e-cello and computer interactive score by John Cage.

Once a performer begins to incorporate the computer into their performance the creative possibilities are endless. Learning how the computer performs a simple task or a small creative project using software will help one get started. Eventually the performer will want to know everything about multimedia software. I became interested in Cycling ’74 MAX/MSP software that encompasses multimedia and digital audio by creating a version of John Cage’s Variations II (1961) for any sound producing means that is played from the computer screen. In order to create the score the performer follows instructions to calculate the musical elements such as pitch, duration, etc. Normally this would take many hours by hand. By programming MAX/MSP software a random score as Cage intended is created and performed in real-time. The computer software is able to perform all the necessary calculations in a split second. The real-time score appears on the computer screen for the performer to sight-read at each performance.

The following is an example of a MAX/MSP patch.

In performance I use a computer and a MAX/MSP software patch, a digital audio interface connected to the computer. The sound of the e-cello can also be randomly modulated by the computer using vst plugins.
