Playing 1950s serial music with the Buchla

June 30, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Incontri di fasce sonore is one of Franco Evangelisti masterpieces. Recorded in 1957 at WDR, Cologne, it is one of the classic scores of the integral serial music era. This is a preliminary study to investigate the possibility of playing 1950s serial music with the Buchla synthesizer and Max/MSP.

“I’ve programmed 315 mixtures of 7 sinusoidal tones in Max/MSP, following the score’s instructions,
then I’ve played them freely in the Buchla, creating a variation piece.”

• Sound generation: MAX/MSP

• Music interface, amplification, spatialization, ring modulation, frequency shifting: Buchla 200e

• Reverb: Jomox T-Resonator

• Reverse mixtures & reverb: EHX2880
