Today I organised a practice with Charlie & Tarek, we tried following a score but it wasn't working so well. It appears the method of using the visual as away of organising the improvisation is difficult. The instruction of stopping playing when you can't recognise yourself doesn't work, sometimes one can't recognise themselves and other times they can only recognise themselves. I going to have to play around with it some more to be certain.
My tutor Kersten watched the piece for a couple of minutes and gave some feedback, it's feedback I've heard before but until now I haven't acted on it. The feedback was that the image and the sound contrast, because of the flashing lights. The flashing happens because I'm using audio to change the opacity of the image. And it's doing it based off of the sound wave. I tried adding a feedback system to reduce the flashing, but thought it might not be enough to stop it from flashing. A quick google search lead me to discover the trail chop, which basically samples different values specified by the CHOPs window length parameter, for example ever 1 second you can sample the amplitude of the wave. It then ramps between the first and the last sample. I'm going to add this to my patch sometime next week when the uni is open.
