teenage engineering choir
eight wooden dolls, made to serenade you with a repertoire of choral classics as well as perform your own original compositions through midi over ble. each member has their own characteristic vocal range, individually one can sing a dynamic solo, together they perform an immersive a cappella concert. the choir is inspired by the original absolut choir, our very first project.
behind the curtain
the pre-programmed repertoire of classic songs has been created and performed using an algorithm based on counterpoint melody, a compositional technique that refers to the independent but complementary relationship between two or more lines of melody played at the same time.
based on cultures and characters from across the world, every doll is unique and has it's own vocal tonality. while each is given their own voice type, a single doll can customize their vocal range to sing a dynamic
solo performance. when more than one member of the choir are placed together, in any combination, they communicate with each other, and recognize the choral members in range, joining in a full choral experience.
choirs midi compatibility is where the magic really happens. conduct your choir with OP–1 field, OP–Z, or any midi keyboard with bluetooth connectivity. or connect an ortho remote for wireless control. connecting one doll pairs the whole choir, instantly singing the notes in your composition. as with any live performance, each set will be a one-of-a-kind experience.
