mimoidalaube is a composition for T-Stick (, a Digital Musical Instrument (DMI). It uses the Spranino version of the T-Stick, which is the smallest in this instrument family, and houses the following sensors: gyroscope, acceleromenter, magnetometer, piezo, as well as pressure an 12 touch sensors. It is an evolution of a DMI that has been in constant development for over a decade. This composition is a fruit of my participation in the second composer's workshop for T-Stick, led and supervised by the inventors of the instrument, Joseph Malloch and D. Andrew Stewart. It was an exciting opportunity to incorporate a DMI into my current practice of comprovisation. In recent times, I have been using a video game approach as a vehicle to music comprovisation and performance. Today's game engines fit well my interest in physical modeling as a mediator in human-computer interaction, visual scores and visualization in the context of live musical performance. I use different techniques of game mechanics and interaction in order to shape the musical material. The visual composition serves both as a form of a score, which invites and guides physical gesture and, at the same time, conveys information about the state of the composition. The public is a witness to the audio-visual feedback between the performer and the work.
As of the time of writing this submission, the composition is not finished yet, but it is scheduled for its premiere on February 11, 2020.
