sam hirschfelder::experiment 01
Experiment 01 is a live improvisational drum performance by Sam Hirschfelder. Sam is also responsible for composing and all the electronic elements backing the live percussion.
Blunk were commissioned to develop an interactive lighting system using live MIDI triggers placed in the drum kit. The system was developed using TouchDesigner. Percussive hit data was programmed to trigger projections used to light Sam while performing.
Bob and I (Blunk) had real-time control over patterns in the projections in order to dynamically control how light responded to Sam’s improvisation.
The recording and film shoot took place at Smooch Records.
The track was mixed and mastered by the legendary Anrei Eremin.
The video was directed and filmed by Blunk.
Editing and post-production was carried out by yours truly.
