SAXELECTRO PROJECT LIVE
SEMI IMPROVISATION 5
Saxophones Thru Electronics, Interactive multimedia and Visuals
Saxelectro Generative Processing:
SAXELECTRO PROJECT LIVE is Saxophone Audiovisual Performances based on Generative Processing in Sound Creation, Music Composition, Improvisation, and Visuals.
This is a project that combines the sound and movement of the Saxophones with the Electronic Music Technology, Interactive Multimedia and Visuals, and moving from the world of Experimental Music Creation in the world of real Music Entertainment.
In Saxelectro Project Live combined in real time the sound of Saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor, bariton) which is an acoustic wind instrument with great sound and large expressive range, but with difficult controlled sound, with the Electronic Music and the huge potential that provides, either creating entirely new sounds, either with real music samples with high quality sound that with suitable means incorporated in musical composition. Here i say that the Saxelectro Project moves with great flexibility either to the area of experimental music, with complex and progressive musical events, either to the area of musical entertainment such as the House Μusic and Dance Electronica. Also, the instrument by its move is used as controller that controls varius events within the project via Bluetooth, Camera tracking or High Frequency Sensors and Accelerators, such as Audio / Video event triggering in Audio and Multimedia Applications or DMX Lighting and AFX/VFX controlling.
The term Semi Improvisation 5 indicates a specific project that is not free to improvise in Music and Media, because it contains parts of prepared media and musical events and a stable structure, but it works as improvised and influences the work flow drastically on five key levels. 1) In Musical Form, works with the appropriate controllers and in real time changes the position of preset musical parts by changing so the flow of musical pieces according to the mood of the moment, and so converting it into other musical pieces. 2) Conversion of Acoustic Sounds into something else. With appropriate controllers changing the sound of the Saxophone or the sound of the Voice, and in conjunction with the physical effects of the instrument opens new horizons in musical creativity. 3) The Real Melodic and Rhythmic Improvisation. In that point we go back to tradition of Jazz and other Traditional Music species. 4) Other applications that involved within project and adds more drama and realism in the whole work. Some of them is: DMX Lighting technics, such as Leds, Lasers, or Moving Heads, and Real time Visual Processing with Capture Cameras and VJing Technics. . 5) The important use of instrument's (Saxophone) Move that used as Controller and controls varius events within the project via Bluetooth, Camera tracking or High Frequency Sensors and Accelerators, such as Audio / Video event triggering in Audio and Multimedia Applications, or AFX/VFX controlling, and DMX Lighting.
