Louis Pino is a percussionist and technologist living in Toronto. His work tends to focus on physical theatricality centered around themes of neural entrainment and absurdity. He often makes use of motion and light sensors, incorporating technologies like the no input mixer and various homemade synthesizers and controllers in order to create systems in which the body, mind, and sound form one unit. His most recent project with TaPIR is the composition and recording of a quartet for percussion, making use of the MUGIC gestural controller and Arduino for both sound and lighting design. Future plans for Pino include the development of percussion specific software to better calibrate and utilize the MUGIC sensor, and the composition of a solo for open instrumentation and electronics acting as both an artistic creation and a learning tool for instrumentalists interested in hands-on experience with the Max MSP software.
