Metaphysics of Notation

Percussionists John Pobojewski and Andy Bliss performed The Metaphysics of Notation by composer Mark Applebaum at Stanford University’s Cantor Arts Center 17 jan 2010.

We performed four panels over the course of an hour using different percussion instruments ranging from snare drums to squeeky toys. Accompaning the duo was an ambient electronic landscape controlled by an iPhone, and programmed by Pobojewski to respond to the movement of those passing by as detected by a webcam.

All programming was built with Processing, using TouchOSC to connect the phone with the laptop.
