ENSO RESONANCE

This collaborative performance features Shalun Li, a pianist, and Rihards Kolmanis, a composer and musician, both from The New England Conservatory. Enso Resonance debuted at The New England Conservatory's Burns Hall and Brookline Public Library's Hunneman Hall in October 2023.

Shozab Raza is credited with designing the sound-reactive dynamic visualization and performs it live alongside the musicians.

Shozab, in collaboration with Baopu Wang, utilized TouchDesigner to design generative visuals, integrating live audio input to dynamically modulate the visuals in real-time. Within TouchDesigner, Shozab and Baopu developed intricate systems enabling the use of customized sliders and buttons to interactively accompany the performance. These visuals were projected using a 5000-lumen projector.
