DescriptionThis dataset includes short extracts and examples of development versions of the bass clarinet version of gruntCount. The data set also includes a number of live performances of the work given by Peter Furniss in 2014. The recordings are not polished final mixes but documentary examples of work in progress.
An example of a certain ending. The performer (Peter Furniss) waits for the right moment and then commits, closing the piece with a loud burst into the microphone. (12.03Mb)
An example of a certain start. The performer (Peter Furniss) starts the piece and the computer responds with a full, burbling texture. Peter then waits, the next material reveals more aspects of the computer's voice and the responsive nature of the slippery presets. (8.630Mb)
An example of the computer making suggestions to the performer (in this case Peter Furniss). You might note the gentle chord that emerges shortly after the start of the example, which seems to suggest that Peter play more quietly. The computer then takes pitch information from the bass clarinet, which becomes a bass drone over which Peter extemporises melodically. (5.214Mb)
An example of playing under the gruntCount threshold. This prevents the piece from moving along and gives the player a chance to remain in the same place and setup the right moment to move things along again. (10.73Mb)
Another example of playing under the gruntCount threshold. This prevents the piece from moving along and gives the player a chance to remain in the same place and setup the right moment to move things along again. (28.24Mb)
