In ‘Duel Tones’, ‘Isadora’ was used to build an abstract world consisting of synthetic imagery in response to short bursts of audio data frequency information, mapped to various visual parameters, in terms of shape, colour and custom graphics.  The idea behind this piece was to analogously emulate both the behaviour of harmonics in a musical tone and the timbral evolution of harmonics in tones and simultaneous tones – a duel. The electroacoustic composition was composed by Bébhinn McDonnell using the visuals as a type of evolving, synthetic graphic score
