Max and Daisy

Max and Daisy is a multi-channel sound installation, created for an event at the Dalston Roof Park in 2011. The piece involves four synthesised voices which sing in four part harmony, following a score which is generated on the fly.

The work is intended as a tribute to the late Max Matthews and all the software was built using his namesake, Max MSP. The title references his pioneering work with digital music, in particular his computer singing Daisy Bell in 1961.
