EIDOLON: 01.06.2019 Michael McCormick [Mike McCormick]

In October 2018, German vocalist Mascha Corman asked the composer to play a duo concert with her in Switzerland, knowing very well that he was scheduled to be in Canada at the time. She wanted to be able to engage with his improvising electronics without his presence in an effort to explore the performative possibilities that lie between solo and duo settings. His response was to create EIDOLON, an algorithmic improvising programme written in the SuperCollider programming environment. In performance, EIDOLON listens to a performer’s input, analyses the current musical situation and independently makes decisions that inform the generated sounds and transformations.
