Mass Mind

Mass mind is a composition for soprano and live electronics written in MaxMSP. The basic premise for the piece is that the singers voice accompanies itself through the implementation of a canon consisting of between 5 and 8 voices. These voices randomly move around the performance space and are processed in a variety of ways. The most fundamental processing effects are tremolo, flanger, comb filter, chorus, and reverb. The title of the work is in reference to the collective conscience, where the entire collective structure is birthed from a single origin. In the context of this work, that origin is the voice.
