Durant, Yati; Rawlinson, Jules. (2018). Pixidust_ Yati Durant (r) and Jules Rawlinson (l) 26.05.17 take 2(repatch), [sound]. University of Edinburgh. Reid School of Music. http://dx.doi.org/10.7488/ds/2282.
This is an audio recording of the second take of improvisations by Yati Durant and Jules Rawlinson on 26th May 2017 using two modular synthesizers and an Elektron Machinedrum mixed directly to the input of Pixivisor software. The audio output represents the input that creates visuals, and provided a visual feedback that contributed to the communicational development of the improvisation. In this recording, the two improvisors began with unmatched synthesisers and built the sound palette without resorting to previous settings. Overall, the improvisational complexity was felt by both improvisors to be more refined and the techniques richer.
