The piece requires a Max expert in charge of the live-electronics, computer equipment setup and software installation.
A Max expert is also required during the performance, in charge of handling and mixing the elements of the live-electronics.
A sound engineer in charge of sound amplification, P.A./stage equipment setup is also required.
The solo voice is amplified and diffused through two front speakers.
The control-room computer centralizes and processes all live-electronics.
The solo voice is captured - through a headset/wireless microphone - and processed in the Max software, which diffuses multichannel audio (6 channels).
The singer triggers live-electronics events mentionned in the score, through a sustain pedal, so live-electronics events occur in sync with the singing.
The on-stage laptop displays the triggered cues as well as a coutdown on some of the events - also mentionned in the score.
Both control-room and on-stage computers communicate through some MIDI (pedal) and Ethernet (OSC/UDP protocols) connections.
Events might be of different kinds: mainly triggering soundfiles and voice harmonization settings, in addition to reverberation settings.
Live-electronics are diffused through 6 speakers placed in a surround fashion around the audience.
Soundfiles are stereo and diffused in front speakers, while harmonizations and reverb are diffused through all 6 speakers.
