L’électro-organisme David Piazza

While a primary level of programming defines the machine’s response, another layer describes the change of this response in time. This machine, thenceforth, vector of its own utterance as well of its operator, is in constant mutation. The unpredictability of its state generates sound matter, the units of which are projected into the listening space and act in a similar manner as the trajectories displayed by the members of a hive, mobilized by swarm dynamics. A dialogue is born and is continually renewed with the operator. The encounter is fortuitous and involves the fusion of systems of intuition and calculation in a seat of shared virtuosities.
