All My Friends Really Are Superheroes was commissioned by Samuel Stoll, and first performed by him at Tate Britain, London, on 1st April 2011, as part of a Microtonal Projects/Late at Tate event.
The electronics involved consist of 43 samples (some of which are recordings made by Samuel Stoll, others taken from the internet), and pitch-shifts in the range +12/-12 (i.e.one octave up and one octave down). This all requires a close microphone and foot pedal e.g. Roland FC300 connected to computer. The left control pedal regulates downward pitch-shifts, the right control pedal regulates upward pitch-shifts. Samples and MaxMSP-patch are available on request.
