Schindler Visitor Center

The collaboration at the Schindler Visitor Center in Ebikon was commissioned by Idee & Klang.
The task was to interpret the dramaturgies and concepts of the individual installations on site using Open Sound Control messages, resp. to synchronize the timing of the audio playback with the installations. The implementation was preceded by a lengthy planning phase in which various concepts were thought out, tested and finally realized with Max/MSP within Ableton Live (Max4Live).

In a multi-channel environment (with up to 180 channels per set), the ability to create smooth transitions between idle and active modes, to follow non-linear scene progressions, and to create precise transitions between rhythmic elements in a non-quantized environment that is necessarily flexible in terms of time required a great deal of flexibility within the clear structures of Ableton Live.
