nice to meet you @Kyle and @leegilboa, and thanks @DaN for creating this platform for discussion, listening, and performance.
my name is joseph branciforte, a musician, composer, and recording engineer based just north of new york city. my “day job” is as a freelance recording engineer at studios around NYC and as a mixing & mastering engineer at my studio in bushwick, brooklyn. my current musical work is focused on algorithmic composition for acoustic ensembles using max/msp and live performances based around the fender rhodes extended with hardware DSP, modular synthesis, and tape loops. i am starting a record label this year called greyfade with a focus on algorithmic processes in acoustic and electronic music, both composed and improvised.
i have no experience in spatial audio as a composer, and limited exposure to spatialized works as a listener. therefore, i come to this group to listen, learn, and absorb the history and myriad possibilities offered by the multichannel format, with the hope that i might be able to incorporate some of them into future work.
