Feedback Cycles Kasey Pocius

Feedback Cycles explores the limits of audience perception though the use of various time scales, how various complex systems based on feedback loops react to often minuscule changes, and how these acoustic systems seem to parallel many modern-day experiences, such as sexism, homophobia and climate change, as viewed by the composer. The piece is divided in four movements and was composed as an 8-channel electroacoustic piece between September and December 2018, though it makes use of field recordings made by the composer as early as January 2017.
