An interactive composition for smartphone and electronics
"One-Way Transmission" is a participatory composition with graphical expression generated from landscapes. The abstract notation functions as a single journey with a prepared path. The participant who opens the gyroscope webpage is the connected performer. Performers are free to respond to the unpredictable effects with their mobile devices in the evolving soundscape until reaching the end of the route. The system retrieves the information through the Internet's connectivity and responds to the incoming messages with audible feedback. It allows the audience to establish relationships with the interconnecting network by simply opening a webpage. The interaction process with remoteness and randomness has the effect of opening our mind to the world around.
Each performer can freely interpret the graphical score with its path and texture. Shake your smartphone to trigger the electronic sound.
The piece is roughly 5 minutes with pre-programmed recording as the background. There are granular sounds generated by the system as an improvisation on the same path shared with performers
The interactive effects respond to the dynamic of shaking. You can switch the triggered sound by shaking your phone harder.
The abstract landscape was generated by RunwayML software with GIS images of Taipei.
