MFA Jazz Drums ('19)

A Drum Solo Visualized

Hello, I am a Jazz Drums MFA ALUM ('19). My goal with this submission has been to find a way to make visuals that clearly represent what drummers practice --moving around the kit and using multiple limbs at once to create music. I wondered if there was a way to visualize this. I then realized that learning some basic coding could help me reach this goal!

I have placed drum triggers and piezo mics on my hi hat, ride cymbal, toms, snare drum and bass drum. I created a patch in MAX/MSP that parses the amplitude information received by each trigger. From there, it is instantly routed into a coding software called Processing where real-time visuals are created. The effect is seeing what you hear in an abstract but clearly understandable way. Thank you for checking it out! -Carson

Three kinetic sculptures explore relationships between circularity/co-opting/recycling and linearity/polarization/binary-ness, and how personal agency or positionality intersects with these linked mechanics. (They’re NOT “voting machines;” they reflect the operation of many large systems, frameworks and conversations, e.g., the relationship between the DIY ethos and capitalism, between the political far left and far right, and among nested […]
