Electronics for Luigi Nono's A Pierre. Dell'Azzurro Silenzio, Inquietum

Electronics in SuperCollider for Luigi Nono's A Pierre. Dell'Azzurro Silenzio, Inquietum.

Before beginning

Some slight changes must be made in order for this to function:

Get an impulse response

The reverb uses a convolution reverb which requires an impulse response. For a great collection of free responses, see The Echo Thief.

Modify paths

In main.scd, the following lines must be modified:

  • Line 18:

    metaEnvir.thisDir = "path/to/this/file".standardizePath; // set the directory

    Change the path to whatever the directory is that main.scd is placed in. If you're using the SC IDE or Emacs, using thisProcess.nowExecutingPath.dirname should work fine.

  • Line 37:

    rev.irPath = "path/to/your/impulse/response".standardizePath;

    Set the path to your impulse response.

Check your MIDI device

Set your MIDI device

Also in main.scd:

  • Line 32:

    midi.out = MIDIOut.newByName("yerMIDIdevice", "Port 1"); // for sending midiout

    Set your MIDI device however you wish. Using .newByName is an easy way to ensure you connect with the correct device and port each time.

In all likelihood, you'll need to modify the MIDI CC channels for your device. This can be done in SC/midi.scd. A function is available there that clears the reverb buffers to better facilitate rehearsals.
