  • David Behrman - On the Other Ocean (excerpt)


    album notes are here http://www.lovely.com/albumnotes/notes1041.html
    with the first bit being
    "On the Other Ocean" (1977)
    David Behrman, Electronics
    Maggi Payne, Flute
    Arthur Stidfole, Bassoon
    Kim-1, Harmonic Responses
    Engineering by "Blue" Gene Tyranny
    Recorded at The Recording Studio, Center for Contemporary Music, Mills College (Oakland, CA), September 18, 1977.
    "On the Other Ocean" is an improvisation by Maggi Payne and Arthur Stidfole centered around six pitches which, when they are played, activate electronic pitch-sensing circuits connected to the "interrupt" line and input ports of a microcomputer, Kim-1. The microcomputer can sense the order and timing in which the six pitches are played and can react by sending harmony-changing messages to two handmade music synthesizers. The relationship between the two musicians and the computer is an interactive one, with the computer changing the electronically-produced harmonies in response to what the musicians play, and the musicians influenced in their improvising by what the computer does. The recording is of a live performance.

        thanks, can't take too much credit, just lucky to have some facebook friends who really know their stuff and were around from the early part of that history. Those liner notes I linked to are really interesting and point to other artists that are worth a look at as well.
