SAMSON YOUNG
PULSE RADIO II –
HOMAGE TO NICOLAS COLLINS

Sep 2, 2013




Sound composition for one performer with heart rate sensor, duration 22’30”. The basic mechanism is as follows: a wireless heart rate sensor transmit Samson Youngs pulses into the computer, which are turned into “play-head triggers” of a sound file of Claude Debussy’s Arabesque No. 1. With this framework in place he improvised with the play-head position, recorded the deconstructed piano classic in real time, and then overlaid and re-arranged them into a sound composition. Support: Lukas Amacher and Lobsang Tashi Sotrug
