less hardware, more music !

As our software is getting more and more powerful inside laptop computers , ipads and smartphones, musicians can propose more easily open workshops for children or adults . At Audiorama, we are doing a lot in different schools and social centers. When you are going to schools with your equipment nearly every day, you begin to think about less hardware and lighter devices. When you bring 4 to 8 ipads, a laptop, audio and midi interface, a microphone and cables, you can put all these devices in one suitcase or a big backpack and roll it to the classroom. But if you have to bring also the speakers and a mixer, you need at least a second heavy suitcase and you begin to break your back … Well, we did that for years and that was really a problem ! Recently we solved it thanks to 2 wonderful little hardware devices, that we’d like to show you here :
– a very very little console to mix 4 ipads : Rolls MX42 – 4 stereo ins and 1 stereo out, passive, very simple and cheap, 10cm long, a very light but solid  little box. And if you need more ipads, buy a second one and plug it to your audio interface. You’re ready to let 8 kids play together on those wonderful ipads synthesizers, samplers, beat makers or any app you like to use.
But now even if they have prepared their individual music parts on little headphones, you want them to play for real on speakers and you know that good speakers are heavy. We tried good but heavy ones and little ones too, but not so good, not enough power, lacking bass frequencies. We discovered one stereo speaker that solved our problem :
iLoud : very well manufactured by IK Multimedia, this new little box is powerful, clean, stereo in one box and can work on it’s battery power a whole day.We have tested these two devices during the last 4 months at our kids workshops in Florida and in France. It changed our educational practice and you know what : we don’t need any power plug, all the devices run on their own batteries : laptop, interface, mixer, ipads, speaker.
Now don’t misunderstood our intention, this is not advertising. This is just to help you and let all of us think about that hardware problems in our everyday musician’s life.

a selection of musical apps on ipads and smartphones

2 types : audio apps can be played without a computer, most of them on an ipad and an iphone, but very little on androïd.
midi apps are designed to control parameters in a computer software or on any hardware electronic instrument.
AUDIO apps :
Professional
synths, samplers (sometimes emulations of mythic hardware devices, sometimes brand new multitouch ios devices) :
Moog : Animoog, Filtatron
Korg : iMS-20, iMini, iPolysix, iKaossilator
Propellerhead : Thor, ReBirth
Arturia : iSEM
edjing : one of the best dj app (also exists in androïd format)
IK multimedia : SampleTank
Retronyms : Phase84, SynthDrum machines : ElliottGarage : EGDR808 (one of the good TR808 emulations), Beat_Machine (F)
Workstations : Tabletop, BeatMaker2, Gadget (some of these can integrate other compatible apps), GarageBand,
Funny apps : it doesn’t mean that you cannot make serious professional music with them but they usually propose a limited but most of time very inventive access to sounds and are usually designed for non-musicians : (F is for free app)
Propellerhead : Figure
ZKM :  Small Fish (F), Sonor Field (F)
John Cage Foundation : CagePiano (F),
Larrson : 4’33”- John Cage (F)
TCP:Bells (F)
Yappophone (F)Retronyms : Stryke
Smartfaust : an amazing set of 14 little apps for smartphones by Grame in France (F)

MIDI apps :
Liine Lemur
(supposed to be also on androïd, but… )  the legendary multitouch french hardware has a second awesome career on ipad. On it you can design all the surfaces you need to control by midi or osc any existing software or hardware. Amazing objects, with all sorts of specific behaviours. It’s true : you can build anything with or without coding. Awesome for mixing, spatialization, live electronics, sound installations. Very professional.Other midi controller editors : Midi Touch, OpenOsc (also on androïd ?)
Some specific non-editable midi controllers for Logic Pro or other software

Of course, this list can’t be complete and new apps are released continously, it’s only the beginning specially on the appstore. It’s my selection at now. We are currently using these apps in different Audiorama projects for performances, installations, workshops.
If you happen to be in Florida tomorrow : I’m giving an overview of all these apps in an open and free workshop :
Saturday March 14th 2015 – 1 to 3 pm – at ACA Harris House 214 S. Riverside Drive New Smyrna Beach, Florida, USA.
I’m here in residence for 2 months and a half.
If you’re french : I’ll do a big professional workshop on AbletonLive + ipads + M4L – June 22 to 26, 2015 in Strasbourg, France.

Electric Shamans in Florida

enfantsipads

Electric Shamans – an interactive sound installation by Bruno de Chénerilles
Saturday March 7th – 4 to 7 pm – ACA at Harris House, 214 S. Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, USA. Refreshments served. Free and open to the public.

Created in May 2014 in Strasbourg, France, this interactive sound installation find its sources in the composer’s analog tapes from the eighties. All these sounds are reborn and edited in digital format and visitors can play, transform, remix and spatialize them on iPads. Come to make some music or just listen, no musical background necessary. Electric Shamans was produced in France by Audiorama and supported by Ville de Strasbourg and Institut Français.

As on every Saturday, you can also come at 1 pm  to my open sound workshop at Harris House. Whether you are a musician or not, adult, child or parent, you can come to talk, listen and play with sounds

two very useful communities of users

Lemur on iPad + Ableton Live is definitely for me the most awesome combination of software for live electronics, sound spatialization, interactive sound (and video) installations and sound workshops in general. Especially when you use Max4Live in Ableton Live.
You can do a lot with them without heavy coding, even without any coding at all. If you understand and practice midi controls – nowadays which (electronic) musician doesn’t …? -, you will set up easily very powerful systems for your performances, installations, workshops …
Less time for coding gives more time for music, no ? For me it really does.By the way, a very interesting statement from Mark Fell in The Wire mag – January 2013 might open new doors to some of us or confirm what others are already thinking (I’m one of these) :
http://www.thewire.co.uk/in-writing/essays/collateral-damage-mark-fel
But my first aim was to introduce two users’ forums where you can find a lot of patches, ask for help and sometimes find your solutions :
Liine Forum : that’s the forum for Lemur
www.maxforlive.com : on this website a lot of patches, free bundles and connected users
I’m very glad to have some followers quickly after the first post. Please feel free to comment or to ask for what you need. This blog can also be yours …
That’s all for today. Being at now under a bright and hot sun in Florida, I’ll quit my laptop for the day and go outside near the beaches …
Cheers,
Bruno

children music workshops and live electronics concerts with Lemur on iPads

For 3 years, we are experimenting at Audiorama very simple midi interfaces designed on Lemur for electroacoustic projects at La Canardière Elementary School in Strasbourg, France. Aged 7 or 8 years old, these children produce their own sounds on a prepared piano, percussions and by voice. We record them directly in Ableton Live software, edit and process them a little. Then, we use 6 to 8 iPads to play the sounds on Lemur specially designed interfaces. In 10 to 15 hours of workshop, the children can play a very simple electroacoustic piece for their parents or other classes at school.
This open and experimental approach to music and sound was mainly inspired by John Cage’s music philosophy and by Pierre Schaeffer’s educational concepts in musique concrète. Bruno de Chénerilles communicated and demonstrated this practice at two forums in Canada : JFREM (Journées francophones de Recherche en Education Musicale) Ottawa, 2009 and National Forum of CNMN (Canadian New Music Network) Calgary, 2014. In these 2 papers, he tells about his work with children and some of his own more sophisticated developments with multitouch interfaces in live electronics, installations and sound spatialization.

Some videos document his work in both situations : children workshops and live electronics concerts.

Merry Christmas !

Using multitouch surfaces in music began some years ago. Appearing with JazzMutant’s awesome Lemur original hardware, it is now reborning with iPads. Hardware midi control surfaces are still used by musicians, but designing custom surfaces has opened to much more flexibility in live electronics and interactive installations. Beside that, Moog was the first editor to propose a brand new professional synth Animoog for iOs devices. Korg, Propellerhead are developing synths, samplers and workstations.
Filming and editing videos with iMovie on iPads now brings video production to children.
Since 2012, we are experimenting this new multitouch approach in our concerts, installations, educational music and video workshops.
On this blog, we’ll share technical, artistic and educational information based on our own experiments. We are also very interested to know your point of view, your realisations. We hope this place will be useful to a lot of artists, technicians and educators.
