in cooperation with andre wakko

a three steps project assignment by the name “power of 2″, was the starting point for the realization of this piece of work. first step was to produce 32 lines of program code in a language of our choice. by having a keen interest in chaotic and mathematical processes we put our focus on programming a plotter to produce complex shapes seemingly chaotic in the first place but based on the lagged fibonacci generator.

the second step was to use 16 pieces of electronic modules. by using the popular arduino boards and solenoids we developed little objects for producing sequenced rythms by letting the solenoids hitting different objects.

putting it all together in step three, we build up 8 boxes with measurements based on the golden cut. the outcome so far is now a sound installation with the concept of putting a different form of understanding to complex mathematical systems, so letting the listener experience a more subtle type of understanding.

“A little boy closed his eyes before he went to sleep. He thought about his lunch in the school, how the leafs are green and if u look it really close u can see some small veins, like the ones in the neck. He started to count how many of them he can see. 1, 2,1,3 … the numbers start flowting away, dancing in the black sky of his brain, changing colors, going up side down and suddently….one of them starts to make a cintilante sound, like a bell made of a fine glass. The other number got excited and try to imitate or follow the first one. They got lost, and back again, and a strange symphony was making the boy go deeper and deeper in his blackness. He hears Fibonacci when he sleeps.”

13wege

by taking headlines from online newspapers from all over the world from one day and reading them in a canon an overlay and thus overload of information develops itself which concludes into a dissolution. this noise contains no hearable information anymore rendering the output useless.
this project was part of a sound program by the name “13 wege aus der krise” and aired in the at the kunstradio, a part of the austrian broadcasting station oe1.

citysound

transforming the subway system of vienna to a symphony, by using details as duration of train times, the geographical positions of the stations, opening and closing times of the train traffic and several other parameters as a blueprint for sound-editing. the footage was recorded at the different stations in vienna, though letting the listener travel on the soundwaves of the public transport system through the capital of austria.
