Speaker Spirals

tape piece
2015
The processing for this piece initially began as an attempt to model the feedback of a microphone and speaker system. The processing was then expanded to embrace its virtuality in ways that would otherwise be physically impractical, dynamically positioning the speakers and microphones as well as scaling the distances and amplitudes to unrealistic proportions. This piece uses the movement of the virtual speakers as a structural device, beginning with a cluster that spirals around and away from the central microphone.
