Lucent Aquarelle (2001) was composed for harp and live computer system
(Macintosh computer running Max/MSP). The live computer system samples the sound of the harp, performs digital signal processing on it, and reproduces the transformed harp sound in the hall in real time.
Various sound synthesis and signal processing techniques, including
modulating spectral data through FFT/iFFT processing, are employed.
This piece was commissioned by and premiered at the Media Art Festival
2001 at the Sizuoka University of Art and Culture in Japan, and selected
for performance at ICMC 2002 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
