Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Twitter Philosopher is a piece for midi drum set, live visuals/audio, and live twitter feed. At the start a topic is chosen which will become subject to heavy philosophical inquiry. A connection will be established with twitter.com to stream all incoming tweets, filtering them by the chosen topic. With every hit on the pads of the midi drum set the soloist will trigger the latest tweet on the beat. Starting off in a slow pace, in contemplation scouring the individual outputs from the Twitter mind. The content of the individual tweets that’ll show on screen get more and more incomprehensible as the drummers’ groove intensifies...
