Other Plastics

Other Plastics is the the duo improvisation project of Hunter Brown & Dominic Coles. Other Plastics explores the unruly behavior of a unique hybrid analog/digital feedback network. Signals from hacked instruments, no-input mixer, and salvaged appliances are sent into software designed in the SuperCollider programming language which processes and alters the original signals through various means controlled by the performers. These signals are transformed through various spectral, stochastic, and algorithmic techniques in realtime using interactive controllers and are then sent back into the analog equipment creating a dynamic and chaotic feedback system wherein the performers seek to simultaneously tame and unleash the disorderly characteristics and qualities native to our system.
