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

It explores how everything, including ourselves, is connected, and how important it is that we take the time to slow down and notice the nature that surrounds us every day. http://www.noticingnature.com/
Originally located on the back wall of the MOD, IRIS was a 3-dimensional automated aperture that opened to about 17-ft in diameter to reveal a lit cyclorama in its opening. For the Virtual Campus, we will be modeling the iris in 3D software, then using lighting software to create various lighting looks. Christian Mejia (MFA2, […]
