A man playing a trumpet in a casual, unknown space.

A computer screen showing an image of Bit-Com. A man sits smiling next to an electric keyboard. A man holds a trumpet in his lap but the image does not show his upper body.

This project was created as a means to visually enhance performances as well as to give a trumpeter some musical freedom with different kinds of sounds. Bito-Com uses a silent brass mute to input the audio from the trumpet into a computer. Then, a Max MSP patch manipulates the trumpet signals and outputs distorted sounds.
