Minimal Viable Product

Organ and electronics

Minimum Viable Product is a piece for mechanical pipe organ and live electronics. It is based around pitch shifting of the organ and the natural reverb of the room which makes the room seem like it is shrinking and growing. The piece alternates between this intensely visceral and synthetic manipulation of the space, and a calm, meditative atmosphere that sounds a lot more natural.
