2019,02,11-12:37pm — composition1 — from “knot and trre” Rob Gill

The software that created this work drives an interactive installation that has been presented in various contexts. Central to the process is a triangle mesh projected on a screen that serves as the interface through which all activity takes place. The composition process is broken into parts and distributed throughout the mesh along with sounds relating to a theme (“knot and trre” in 2018). Participants activate the mesh via touch sensors that trigger audio and visual events, generating a collective remix of the material. This activity is recorded as data to which a number of visualization and sonification processes are applied, to reveal different aspects of the recorded activity. Here, these forms of analysis are mixed in real time with the original recording. This medium is designed to reveal, store, transform and transmit collective creative activity in order to examine the living presence contained in gestures. I am gradually exploring the possibilities that self-organizing systems, non-linear dynamics and emergent phenomenon offer.
