Plan of Attack/Replacement for Missing Class Tuesday

Hello all, my apologies for not being in class on Tuesday to present and give feedback. I had a complicated night (i.e. I was locked out the crib/stranded till mad early A.M.). 

But yo, find below a detailed plan I have for tackling what I feel will be a SICK instillation on the 26th. Please comment with any thoughts or concerns. Just thought I'd share to give an idea as to where I'm at. 

Main Tasks:
  1. Composition (Developed by Tues. 18th; Finalized by Sat.22)
—> Individual Touches 
a. Light Touches (Finger tips)  — 4 Variations 
b. Large Touches (whole hand) — 4 Variations 
c. Short Contact  —6 variations 
d. Sustained Contact —6 variations 

ideas for touching:

Short Contact
Sustained Contact
Light Touch (Finger tip)
Slowly fading in beginnings of—>
Circulating arpeggio glock clings w/ soft attack and washed reverb
Large Touch (Whole Hand)
Thick synth chord w/ flanger and chorus with medium release time
Unfolding chords of larger composition. Generative triggering with amalgamation of different cells w/ 3 chords in each

         ii. MAX Patching (Done by Tues. 18th) 
  1. Designating Specific Touch Data Ranges (Soft vs. large) —assign to       corresponding composition cell
  2. Counters for duration of contact—>corresponding composition cell
  3. **CROSSFADING between types of contact so that it’s as seamless as the touch

        iii.  Physical Building —(“A.” Done by Fri. 14th; “B”=ongoing)
 A.  new arm bands w/ copper tape SENSORS: Robust wiring/extensions to the breadboard 
B. Pillows, lamps w/ mood lighting/general set up of instillation 

      iv. Conceptual Cultivation 
A. Roll of and engaging bystanders/spectators? 
B. Words denoting rolls on the arm bands or no?

C. What’s their relationship to the blanket/sound coming from participants?
