Quilted Thought Organ (‘QTHOTH’) by Julian Oliver

Game based performance environment, 1998/1999

Development of The Quilted Thought Organ, or ‘QTHOTH’, began at the close of 1998. There were several iterations of the project, continuing on until 2001. It was first publically performed in 2000. QTHOTH sought to explore the possibilities that first person shooter engines offered live experimental music performance. Its primary engine was Half Life 1, though the project initially involved exploration of the Quake II engine.
