The Well-Sequenced Synthesizer

The Well-Sequenced Synthesizer LUISA PEREIRA

Luisa Pereira created “The Well-Sequenced Synthesizer,” which we spotted last night at the NEW INC showcase:

The Well–Tempered Clavier, written by J. S. Bach in 1722, is a series of pieces that explore counterpoint and the then new tempered tuning system.

On The Well–Tempered Synthesizer (1969), Wendy Carlos programmed a Moog analog synthesizer to play a series of Baroque pieces, exploring its new synthetic timbres.

The Well–Sequenced Synthesizer is a series of sequencers –physical interfaces to play with the rules of music.

{look into music theory. program rules. design control interface. play with them. repeat.}

The Counterpointer is a cross between an electronic arpeggiator and a baroque music rule book. It takes a melody input and responds with voices that follow the rules of counterpoint.

Software developed in Java using Processing.org. The Counterpointer uses CFGen’s species counterpoint algorithm. Firmware runs on an Arduino micro-controller.

If you want to check it out in person, the showcase continues through July 30 at Red Bull Studios New York. I snuck a peek inside the Counterpointer’s prototype and spied an Arduino Mega:
