Welcome to Whole-Play,

a Virtual Composer that explores the boundaries and interconnections between improvisation and composition.

Whole-Play is a musical framework that explores the interaction between improvisation and composition and which, through the use of computer programming, generates new exciting performing environments.




Sketch 01: Blurred chaos


After Flow, it's time to explore new possibilities for Whole-Play through sketches. Here's the first one, or read on for more info.

Sketch 01: Blurred chaos6.99 MB

Two instruments: the Wrenchspiel (?) and my guitar (in this case a virtual instrument, because I'm traveling and I don't have my real guitar with me).

I wanted to explore:

  • A new feature, blurs (I should write about that sometime)
  • Controlled chaos
  • Non-linear interaction with the improvisation
  • The idea of a dynamic canon

And I know that's all kind of abstract. :) EnJoy!
