Audio Score Player Patch for Semblance of a Whole (Giles, 2015).

Audio Score Rehearsal Patch for Semblance of a Whole (Giles, 2015).

Instructions for use are in the comments in-patch.

Score components:

  1. Audio (electronics) for listener only
  2. Notation.
  3. This player.


  1. Laptop with pd-extended
  2. Three sets of headphones/earphones (that allow instrument sounds through).
  3. Audio interface with at least three mono outputs
  4. At least three mono-feed headphone amp or other feeder system with multiple inputs.


There are two patch files here. The first: Semblance_Audioscore.pd corresponds to the first zip file below and is for rehearsal, if necessary. It includes click tracks for each player and the audio is broken up into sections. The second: Master_Audioplayer.pd is for performance, and corresponds to the second zip file below which has all audio as one feed for each player, with only structural points highlighted with clicks. There is a slow 2/4 count-in for instrument 1, and then each section or temp change is preceeded with two measures of clicks and concluded with one measure in the new section or tempo.
