Rough week.

Lots of people struggling with the stage four lockdown here in Melbourne c/o Covid 19.

This piece is made from the worldwide infection rate, turned into a wave file, then manipulated to generate notation and eventually MIDI data through spectral processing in Open Music.

Realised in Ableton Live.

Hope you're doing ok over there dude.  Thank fuck for music right?!  Fingers crossed that's the worst of it for Melbourne.

Enjoyed the piece btw.  I'm guessing Max processed the data into the initial wav file?

I love the concept and the result is very interesting. A minimalist piece that works actually very well.

I don't think so. Until things become vaccinated, or otherwise controlled/eradicated. I don't think shit will be back-ish to normal-ish (and honestly I hope we learn from this) until maybe 2022.

Thanks for the piece comments - yes, Max processed the data, OM processed the sdif data of the audio of the data... dataception.

Thank you. Yes, I love this kind of stuff. I haven't done much stuff like this for a few years, so it's nice to get back into that way of thinking.
