McGregor Boyle’s new piece, Another August Night

Mcgregor_BoyleComputer Music faculty member McGregor Boyle has been busy with performances of his video piece, Another August Night. This piece takes the music of Boyle’s previous work, August Nights, and uses the software Max/MSP/Jitter to create a video using real time analysis of the music. The images are based on photographs taken by the composer’s wife, Kelly, which are animated by the software to create abstract images in relation to the music. Another August Night received its world premiere at the International Computer Music Conference in Lubljana, Slovenia in Septemer of 2012. The United States premiere occurred at the Society for Electroacoustic Music in the United States Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota in April 2013. Its now scheduled for performance at the Electroacoustic Barn Dance festival in Fredericksburg, Virginia in November 2013.
