beatspeciescounterpointBeat Species Counterpoint for drums and live signal processing was premiered in 2002 with Kurt Snyder on drums. The drum microphones are sent through a custom interface written in Max/MSP. The interface allowed for the second performer, on laptop, to “scratch” the live drums on a Wacom drawing tablet. In addition to the performance at the Peabody Conservatory of Music, it was presented in technical detail at the University of Minnesota “Emerging Digerati” seminar in 2002.
