“For Vibraphone and Live Coding”
A 30 minute concert of live coding by members of the ICE (mICE), featuring Amy Salsgiver (vibraphone). Melodic streams created by the vibraphone are analyzed using a machine listening algorithm in real time implemented in the SuperCollider programming language. The data then is used as raw material to build improvisations and create a dialogue between vibraphone and the laptop performers on the fly.
