This Generative, Reactive Album Changes with the Weather
“There is no doubt that, as music is removed by the phonographrecord from the realm of live production and from the imperative of artistic activity and becomes petrified, it absorbs into itself, in this process of petrification, the very life that would otherwise vanish.”
Theodore Adorno “The form of the Phonograph Record”
Tableau is my first portable Generative Album and it will be soon released.
Tableau will be available in two options:
1) Limited edition of 50 Generative Players + Gleetchlab software
2) CD + Gleetchlab software
Please note: Gleetchlab as usual runs only on Apple Macs and it’s not intended for the Generative Album.
Generative endless music player
Tableau plays on a standalone generative player, it is a portable sound installation.
The music, instead of being “reproduced” like a CD, a Vinyl or an Mp3, it is generated and arranged while you are listening to it. It never sounds the same. Tableau creates an almost endless number of mixes of the LP. Each time you will listen, it will be different, and will keep evolving evolving until you will plug the power off.
It reacts to the environment.
The music of Tableau reacts to temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, space and magnetic field.
No need for screen, keyboards, mouse etc…
To listen to Tableau just plug the power supply and your speakers with a mini-jack cable, Tableau will boot and create music in realtime.
You may also use a standard 2A, 5V battery pack for mobile phones so you can carry Tableau with you anytime, anywhere.
New albums will just require only a new micro SD card
A Generative Album owner will order the micro SD to get the new album/installation.
Updates with new features will be also available and for free.
