ruins in the distance

“The title can hopefully act as a reminder of what all our efforts as a species and a society may amount to if we do not take the necessary precautions to safeguard against our own demise. The audio component is based on a feedback network contained within a computer. This feedback is controlled and put through various timbral transformations by means of algorithmic composition. This means that a set of instructions governs the behavior of various parameters in the piece as it progresses over time. The visual component is made up of black and white wireframe graphics. 40000 vertices are aligned in patterns derived from basic geometric shapes like spheres, planes and cylinders. They are animated in realtime based on analysis of the incoming audio.”
