Ֆ (Sigil 1.0)
Ֆ is an adaptive audiovisual performance setup where visuals are triggered on a note-to-note basis and does not rely on any pre-rendered video files.
Ֆ consists of a Pure Data patch that generates motion graphics when it receives MIDI messages from Renoise's pattern sequencer. Each time a note is played in Renoise's pattern sequencer it outputs a MIDI message to Pure Data which then triggers a visual event through GEM's rendering engine.
Visuals are generated entirely within Pure Data with the exception of 8 PNG files which are automatically loaded in the "crank" subpatches when the main patch is launched.
Also, even if there's a specific Renoise project file intended to be played with this patch, visuals can be triggered by any other DAW, MIDI sequencer and even by a MIDI file read inside Pure Data.
