“Vanishing Points” is my latest real-time interactive MAX/Jitter patch. It was inspired by the event horizon associated with black holes in deep space.
This piece is improvised using a MAX patch and Jitter video processing software. Mouse movements control the sine wave glissandi, while the synth sounds are created using a MIDI controller and computer keyboard rewired into Ableton.
The audio texture is created with delay pipes that are controlled via the pitch wheel and computer keyboard. The direction, velocity and tilt of the video pixels is controlled by the velocity and MIDI note information from the MIDI controller and computer keyboard.
Here’s what the presentation mode looks like:
