Christos Michalakos on CataRT

I decided to work with CataRT and the Augmented Drum Kit. CataRT can be perceived as a “whole family of possible instruments” and can be adapted to different contexts according to the means of control. Being a percussionist, I thought that the acoustic drum kit with the use of extended techniques could be an excellent source for real-time audio mosaicing, one of the many possibilities of CataRT. Using contact microphones on the drum skins, cymbals and the incoming audio from the ensemble, I’m interested in composing a piece taking advantage of the direct control of the electronic sound, driven by corpus-based concatenative synthesis.
