Atlantic Waves

atlanticwaves.jpgAtlantic Waves is an improvised network music performance by Monolake and Deadbeat. A special application, the Atlantic Waves Interface III, makes it possible to create music together in realtime while being thousands of miles apart. The Atlantic Waves Interface utilises a beautiful graphical surface which is projected during the performance. This interface is simple enough to be controlled in real time but allows for building up complex musical structures. It also allows the audience to follow all actions and to become part of the process. Every sound generated has a visual representation and all interaction with the software is displayed. The result is a unique and constantly evolving and changing piece of audio-visual art, created simultaneously in two different locations on the planet.This radical new concept of internet performance provides the bridge between club and fine arts, between computer graphics and music, between installation and improvisation.

Software developed by Robert Henke. Sound design by Scott Monteith.

S o f t w a r e : Atlantic Waves III is a custom performace application, incorporating several step sequencers, sample players, and effects which can be controlled remotely via TCP/IP, as well as by a local performer. The software also provides a chat feature for communication and handles all data management and storage and can be set up to record and capture entire perfromances for later playback and editing or archive. The software will be developped further to allow an “installation mode” where it will generate variations by itself and allows to interact between visitors or between a visitor and an intelligent software agent. Atlantic Waves Interface III runs on MAC OS-X or on PC. No, it is not for sale.

H i s t o r y : The idea came up at the cafeteria of the Anaheim Convention Center L. A. during Namm Show 2002 where Monteith worked for Applied Accoustics and Henke was demoing Ableton Live 2. It took four month to develop the software and finally the first event happend may 30th 2002 at the Monolake studio in Berlin and at the MUTEK Festival in Montreal and was an incredible success. A second event scheduled for october 3rd 2002 in Berlin and New York City did not work out due to internet connection problems. In winter 2004 Henke decided to start again from scratch and wrote a more stable and more powerfull application , Atlantic Waves Interface III. Mai 29 2004 a “public beta test” happened with deadbeat playing on stage in Detroit and monolake in Berlin. Everything was working much better then expected and future performances will follow.

Atlantic Waves performances can be booked. Atlantic Waves Installations are also possible. Please contact office[at]monolake.de for details.
