Abstract:

Elegy (Ready, Set, Rapture) is the second work composed for Coretet, a virtual reality musical instrument modeled after traditional bowed stringed instruments including the violin, viola, cello and double bass. Elegy (Ready, Set, Rapture) is a solo multi-channel performance for the Coretet double bass that combines a pre-composed musical chord structure displayed on the neck of the instrument in real-time with improvisation. Coretet is built using the Unreal Engine and is performed using the Oculus Rift or Quest 2 head-mounted displays and Oculus Touch controllers. All audio in Coretet is procedurally generated, using physical models of a bowed string from the Synthesis Toolkit (STK) and a waveguide plucked string, all running within Pure Data.
