Play Again?


Live cello music controls Pac-Man and Space-Invaders for an unforgettable experience

Play Again?


Cello, Max MSP


Program Note

Using Max MSP, I am able to control a game of Pac-Man and Space Invaders with a cello. 

Everytime I day, the playback of the game audio changes a bit, and each note on the cello controls the movement of the game or when to proceed to the next level. The meta of this piece is that every performance of the game is, by definition, a performance of that game score. So this is performance-ception. Using one performance to control another. 

A demo version is posted above, working on a HD version soon.
