Generating Music w/ Plants with Data Garden [Ableton Spaces]

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Using Ableton Live in tandem with Max for Live, Data Garden artists Sam Cusumano and Joe Patitucci will demonstrate how to translate the activities of living plants ("biodata") into MIDI note and control values, which can then be mapped to software parameters and functions to reveal the activities of plants through generative audio environments. They will also talk about the philosophy and purpose behind doing this, and provide some examples of real-world applications. 

All ages, free.
