You can listen to the 20 minute performance on Soundcloud.
Rhythms and harmonies are extracted from four machines that release energy into a space in contrasting ways: the powerful blanket radiation of a microwave, the heat released by each of a computer's microscopic transistors working together; the wild spray of a garden sprinkler and the tightly controlled chaos of an inkjet printer.
The sounds heard are generated live by algorithms I have coded in the SuperCollider programming language. During the performance I shape these algorithms through 16 continuous parameters mapped to a MIDI controller.
It was performed at the Olympic swimming pool in the London Aquatics Centre on 25 November 2015 as a part of Bigga Fish Festival.
This piece came out of a project between Sound and Music, Bigga Fish and the University of East London.
