Fluid Diffusion for piano and computerThis work was composed for piano and a live computer system. It consists of five sections that have four contrasting characters. The computer part is programmed in Max, and five real-time signal processing routines are employed. The piano sound played on the stage is granulated, its frequency is modulated structurally, and painted to the entire piece. This cloud of sound particles forms sound fluid, and it is diffused along with piano performance.
