Amazing computer process performance – Sewing machine orchestra

October 29, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

I attended this experimental concert yesterday evening – a half hour performance where Martin Messier from Canada is using 8 sewing machines to produce massive noise, beats and almost modular synth madness with his Singer 😉 sewing machines in action. Martin told me afterwards that he’s using Ableton Live and Max for Live to control them. One wasn’t allowed to film it but found this clip on Vimeo of the show, enjoy

“Messier doesn’t sew : he resuscitates old singers put asleep years ago in order to release, in some magical ways, the luminous and sonorous presence of the past. he carries his public in a dreamlike universe where each machine, as singular subject, is magnified. after years of silence, sewing machine orchestra is giving speech to these surviving objects of the industrial era.

this creation was made possible with the support of the canada council for the arts.”
