Robert Appleton's vorTEX with Kate Fleetwood's Lady Macbeth

Robert Appleton's vorTEX creates visual music as a multimedia language of image sound and text (the three essential components of human communication) formed as one with technology. This short excerpt inspired by Kate Fleetwood's incredible rendition of Shakespeare's Macbeth from 2010 was improvised in Toronto in 2014. It was performed live at ArraySpace with Jason Doell's untitled composition for Maria Karam's sensory instrument Emoti-Chair, which allows the deaf to hear through physical vibration. Appleton improvised this visual response using his proprietary software vorTEX, which is further enhanced by Kate Fleetwood's impassioned words, demonstrating the power of multimedia and vorTEX as a single language of communication.
