Huadan’s Whisper

Birth C: CHINA Gender: Female

Dest: Concert

Media Specification: interactive electronic music

Prog. notes: Huadan’s Whisper is an interactive composition for data-driven
instrument Leap Motion, custom software created in Max, and Kyma.
The main sound materials were based on audio recordings of bells,
the Chinese instrument pipa, and a singing phrase from Huadan, a
female role in Chinese opera. By physically engaging the invisible
three-dimensional performance area provided by the Leap Motion,
position data of the two hands were sent to Kyma to control its
sound-producing algorithms, and I was able to control musical
parameters in real time. Through this interactive composition, the
audience was encouraged to travel through multiple sonic worlds.
