Messagesquisse is originally written for 7 cellos.
Christophe Desjardins has realized a version where the solo viola played along with a prerecorded tape.
Synchronization with the tape is realised using a clicktrack that the musician should follow.
The six first tracks of the audio file are sent to loudspeakers located at the postition of the virtual musicians.
Track number 7 is the clicktrack to be sent to the musician ear monitor only.
The tape can be triggered by the soloist using a footswitch pedal on stage or by the sound enginer at the mixing desk using the computer keyboard.
The standalone application (built with Max) can be used by the instrumentalist to practice the piece at home, before the rehearsals in the concert hall.
In concert mode there is only two cues to trigger :
- to start the piece
- to start the tape after the cadenza (number 10 of the score)
- space bar start the sound
- s to stop the sound
In rehearsal situation, you can start the tape at each score section of the piece using the patch menu. Unlike in the “concert” mode, In “rehearsal” mode, each section should be triggered individually
