Improvisation for Jeremy Yeo 27 March 2019 Box Hill Institute

Jeremy Yeo is planning to put on a music/multimedia recital on 6 August 2019 at the Esplanade Recital Studio in Singapore.  He asked for a bunch of us at Box Hill Institute, from which he just graduated with his Master's Degree (congratulations Jeremy!) to make video improvisations that he could incorporate into his recital.  Jeremy was just back at Box Hill, so on March 27, he videoed me improvising on iPad and iPhone in a classroom at Box Hill.  The software on the iPad Pro is Gestrument Pro controlling the Synclavier Go app.  There are 5 voices on the Synclavier, 3 sustained and two short and percussive.  The sustained voices are in 17, 18 and 19 tones per octave tuning, the percussive sounds are in 16 and 15 tones per octave.  The iPhone6 has Gestrument Pro controlling the Fingerlab SK-51, a recreation of the old Casio SK5 sampler.  The samples on the SK-51 are extended vocal sounds I improvised.  The iPad Pro is being played through the classroom sound system.  The iPhone6 is being played through the 2 mighty Marshall mini-Stacks.  If you're lucky enough to be in Singapore on August 6, you can see this video, and many others, in combination with Jeremy's live playing.  If you can't be there, you can at least enjoy this video on its own.
