Current Projects / Developments:

CH // Current Version 0.9

~2019 / 2020

Gran-Volution Re-Synthesis

~2019 / 2020

HID controlled granular synthesis engine used to generate materials in fixed-media format, paired with a nuanced convolution / cross-synthesis system which comes with a bank of over 300 impulse responses / sound files.

Demonstration Video Coming Soon

MH // Current Version 4.1 

~2019 / 2020

Live-electronics performance interface built at CCRMA / Stanford University under the advisement of Chris Chafe, Patricia Alessandrini, and Fernando Lopez-Lezcano, and Romain Michon.  Developed in Max/MSP, Processing, and Wekinator

Capable of Multiple Mappings:

  • Granular Synthesis Mode​

  • Duffing Oscillator Control Mode

  • Live DSP Mode (w/ live input)

  • Combination Mode

  • Live diffusion of sound into ambisonics​

  • Capable from 1st-order up to 5th-order​

  • Live diffusion of sound into multichannel speaker arrays (non-ambisonics)​

  • Completely variable

  • "Off-line" fixed-media DSP​
