Experiments with electric guitar, digital delay, synthesizer and Max/MSP

Whole Tone Blues
This little piece is freely improvised with my hands at the same time on the guitar and the keyboard. The delay provides rythmic background for an improvisation based upon the whole tone scale. The feeling of the piece is bluesy.
It was very exciting to interact with Max (function generating triads and whole tone scales).
Delirium in WT scale
Another piece made with Max. It sounds like tapping notes from the whole tone scale on the fretboard. Believe it or not, it is entirely improvised with Max providing the scale and me changing the tempo, the octaves, the duration of the notes to make slurs.
