Prog. notes: The interactive musical work for Don Quixote, "The Battle of Don Quixote" aims to describe the novel character Don Quixote fantasizing a flock of sheep into a monster and an imaginary enemy, presented as a solo instrument plus interactive electronic music. In fact, the war situation in the story of Don Quixote is also interpreted as a war of inner self. In the journey of life, the enemy is not others but himself. On the music, different sounds produced by striking different parts of the snare drum are used to increase the timbre. In addition, the interactive music system is used to perform real-time volume detection, stress detection, and note density detection of the snare drum to influence it. Changes in real-time reverb, delay, and modulation effects change the sound color of the original snare drum, and change the new texture and sound field space.
