Living Room

Kate Godwin

An ode to familiar, repetitive motions and things.


I am exploring the musical potential of everyday objects and actions for my final instrument in NIME. The goal is to have a series of things that I interact with as one would on any ordinary day. The scene is made beautiful through the 'musical thing-ness' amplified in each part. The central focus of this scene is the production of a 'score' object.

This involves:

3 lamps. applying effects to 3 tracks of audio

A rocking chair. setting the rhythm of the performance. also, contact mics.

A knitting interface. you knit to play this instrument.
