Abstract

Noise Peddler is a part-composed, part-improvised performance for two people, two pedalboards, and four amplifiers involving the re-appropria-tion of guitar effects pedals to create independent musical interfaces capa-ble of generating and manipulating their own sounds. The result is a vis-ually symmetrical live performance that utilises dual stand-alone pedal-boards, generative MIDI/CV control, and video projection, to explore the area between composition and free improvisation. The hybrid performance system employs a selection of cutting edge modern pedal technologies, alongside well-established analog circuits, and explores their potential as an independent interface, away from the guiding force of a traditional acoustic instrument.
