the tendency of all things to take habits Yon Chekhanovich

the tendency of all things to take habits is an exercise in attunement to emergent processes that occur within disorderly spaces. Although end-directed in its larger form, this piece was conceived as a tool to facilitate and guide the listener in following sound paths more attentively, notably those that extend beyond the soundscape itself. My initial idea behind this project was to epitomize through sound some of the concepts Terrance Deacon presents in his book Incomplete Nature. I sought to portray the emergence of self-maintaining living organisms (thermodynamic processes) out of self-organizing non-living ones (morphodynamic processes). In other words, I ambitiously began working on a sound experiment that portrays the origins of life.
