The Particle Series from Deaf Planet

 

These four pieces were made in 2009 using Acer laptop running Winodws, Ableton Live, CME MIDI controller keyboard, a wheezing old FM tuner, lots of plug-ins and synthesizers with Kammerl Audio Slicer as a primary organising tool.

Here are unusual rhythms in ever-changing motion. There’s a kind of repetition similar to the behaviour of a flowing fluid with constraints, and nothing too surprising happens, but there is not sameness. Loops, like waves with stable, non-decaying sources of power, when mixed produce higher orders of complexity across indefinitely extended connections. Streams of data are cut up and edited where natural musical divisions, notes or fractions of beats occur. The lengths between each division are randomly determined. There is no finished state. These versions are snapshots of a process.
