Live multichannel improvisation incorporating chance: 4 dice are rolled on a table, a webcam captures the image, an openCV/Python script processes the image and extracts the numbers on the dice, which regulate the volume and the spatial location of the sounds being produced by the musicians. Thus, the two performers are presented with a third, autonomous stochastic musical entity, with which they interact and to which they must react.
The 4-channel performance has been mastered in binaural sound, so listening in headphones makes for an optimal experience.
