Hello everyone, I just did a presentation at the SAT Société des Arts Technologiques(in French) in Montréal. The reason why I am sending you this e-mail is that for my presentation I used only looping, nothing else. And you know what? It worked. My piece was very well appreciated. It was part of an electroacoustic concert of all the University students of Montreal. It lasted a week ( 4 Universities over 100 performances). Tonight was the real-time performance event. All kinds of stuff. I used a computer to regenerate sound that I recorded on the violin on stage, then I manipulated loops in real-time. The reaction was excellent. I programmed an application myself with 4 simultaneous looping algorithms. In fact I ended the performance too soon... people enjoyed it and said it was too short, I should of let myself go! All this to say, I don't know who I am writing to and I don't know if this interests you but my application runs on MacIntosh and loops four samples of approx. 10 sec. in any shape or form in real-time. Should I improve this application for wider use or does something like it exists and I am wasting my time... I would like to get some feedback! What do loopers need to loop efficiently. I would then work on my application and make it available. Thanks for your cooperation. Ivan Zavada Composer and programm developer. Masters student at Université de Montréal.
