Prog. notes: Action-Reaction is a real-time interactive electronic music composition of approximately eight minutes in duration for two
GameTrak controllers, Max/MSP, and Kyma.In classical mechanics, Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The action and reaction form a single interaction, they are simultaneous and neither
force exists without the other. The GameTrak’s retractable tethers interact with the performer’s push, pull, release and free movements, causing the tethers deviating from and aligning with the rest state. The performer sometimes makes subtle and sparse push movements while sometimes pulls and drags the tethers dramatically. However, after releasing the tethers, the tethers are retracted back to the rest state, creating predictable yet unique realignment path each time. The data measured from the physical movements are mapped to various parameters in the sound producing algorithms, creating musical expressions that are both superimposed and nuanced.
