A real-time composition and improvisation project that adds a performer to the quartet, one that uses a computer as an instrument. The electronic part is executed with the technique known as Live Coding, which consists of generating, through computer codes, a sound work and showing that process to the public, making them participate in the development of the work.
Work developed thanks to the support of the “Flight Practices” program of the Mexican Center for Music and Sound Arts (CMMAS).
JazzCodes I: The evolution of an Inuit child’s dreams after his mother has taught him to distinguish the 29 shades of white of the tundra
JazzCodes II: The chemical conditions of the environment during the birth and death of a star
JazzCodes III: This wall is sad because godzilla has died
JazzCodes IV: Dextro Nights, a second before sunrise after a delirious walk under the bridges of Tenochtitlán. Nocturnal, stamp, graffiti, chiaroscuro in a neighborhood…
JazzCodes V: A thousand butterflies ascending to the sky illuminated by a moonbeam that filters through the forest in a clearing (Sergio Olimán in memoriam)
JazzCodes VI: A UN video, played backwards, of a drone attack on Syria where a delayed detonator bomb is embedded in a house, a family embraced, splinters embedded in the walls.
JazzCodes VII : —.. ..-.-. —.
This version features the first implementation of my chemical computers, a chip that contains a chemical oscillator known as the Belouzov-Zhabotinsky reaction. The analysis of this generator of spatio-temporal rhythms was my source of data with which I made this improvisation of live coding.
