Singularity | Recursive Arts

This piece proposes a non-interactive linear macro-structure, where materials have been preselected and organised following a premeditated direction, just in the manner of the fixed-media tradition. However, once we examine the sound materials in detail, we can observe how most of them are being algorithmically generated in real-time using a sonification of cellular automata, producing an ever-different concatenative synthesis effect. These automata are fed by a large array of micro-sounds that have been carefully dissected from a large corpus of industrial recordings at Manchester's MOSI museum.
