Enigma and Sound Synthesis

ENIGMA was the first multimedia piece I created using the rendering features of Final Cut Pro to create animation. The electronic music composed was a combination of sound synthesis using Supercollider, distorting my voice through various audio software, SoundHack, and sounds created using the tar, a hand drum.

I altered the sound clips for ENIGMA by dramatically slowing the speed, creating undulating panning patterns, and adding delays and reverb, to create a constant, slowly morphing musical composition.

ENIGMA has traveled extensively, with screenings in Australia, Cuba, and throughout the United States, with thousands of hits on the net through You Tube.

I have to give a special thanks to Dr. Kristine H. Burns at Florida International University for her painstaking help and advice with creating ENIGMA.
