Live Painting as an Interface for Generating Music
by Yosuke Sakai & Hiroto Takeuchi

This is an experimental performance which starts with live painting (Japanese traditional brush painting with black ink). The image made by painting is converted into sound, which is composed and edited by a musician using an analog synthesizer. We made a device and an application which do this in real time. Since painting with brush and ink is not easy to control, the generated sounds are different every time, although the painter tries to make exactly the same one, which makes the composer face contingency and have to handle it. The performance will be highly improvisational.
