Obeying the Laws of Physics
The software for Obeying the Laws of Physics defines an interactive environment consisting of four timbral regions — each representing a different instrumental family. The percussionist explores each region and controls transitions from one to another using cues derived from specific percussion playing techniques.
The computer knows no precomposed score — the performance is completely controlled by the percussionist and requires no intervention on the part of a computer operator.
