Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), February 18, 2015.Nicolas Buligan - The Box v1 [first piece, excerpt]
This new solo endeavour from the always busily-collaborating Nick Buligan sees his trumpet work extended through the deployment of a custom-created patch for Max 7. The cool element is that it's hands-free, allowing the player to stay focused on his instrument as the patch extends and decays his sounds across the stereo spectrum. It also left room for a fair amount of variability as Buligan experimented not only with some more straight-ahead playing (as heard here) but also clicks, pops, blurts and drones.
