Restmetall preparations

we will doing some ‘restmetall’ performances in the next months (FILE/Sao Paulo, Ostrava/Czech Rep, Mannheim + Braunschweig/Germany), so we are starting prepairing new material.
We built a usb-footswitch based on the BU0836 joystick controller Everything you need to know about it is documented on their website.

Additional material: a piece of aluminium profile, 4 stompbox switches, a piece of garten hose, hot glue and minimum of soldering
This gives us a really lightweight usb-footswitch to use with max/msp using the hi-object.

We modified a wii remote to attach it to the back of one hand. So it’s possible to play with it and have both hands free for objects and the microscope.
We sewed a piece of plastic onto a glove for mountain climbers and clued a strong velcro tape on it. The second half of the tape is glued onto the battery cover of the Wii.

January 29, 2009 – The Canadian Ensemble Noiseborder performed at the University of Windsor. Connected via audio and video live streaming, Martin Slawig played with them – from the blackhole-factory studio in Braunschweig, Germany. The sound of the acoustic instruments was streamed to Braunschweig, Martin transformed it by a live processing software (MAX/MSP) and streamed it back into the concert hall. The musicians in Canada then played together with the incoming sounds. All of them had to deal with an 11 seconds delay.
