Cloud Music

Audience and Cloud Computing ● Spring 2017 ● Variable

Program Note

Cloud Music is an experimental work for audience participation and cloud computing. Audience members load a website on their mobile device, specify values, and then submit those values to a web server. The web server is periodically polled by a Max patch, which uses the user-specified data to launch Cloud sprites, which then drift across the screen. If a user specifies that a cloud should be a thunder cloud, it reacts with other thunder clouds.

Cloud Music is the first proof of concept in an ongoing project to unify audience participation, cloud computing, and interactive performance.
