Crosley is an audio-visual portrait of an abandoned building, which in the form of live performance toys with the idea of active perception, visibility and obscurity of the interior and the exterior, of images and sounds rearranging their equilibria. The images were recorded, and then edited loosely in time with the musical composition, which were then processed and mixed live, through a custom patch made in MAX/MSP(Jitter). The music creates a sense of desolation, depression, while treating it delicately. It is an electroacoustic piece for solo violin. The electronic part is achieved by processing the acoustic violin sound through using software such as Max/MSP and Real Time Cmix.
