Music for browsing
Music for browsing is an interactive generative soundscape; it is subversive ‘furniture music’ for Internet servers; it is a roadtrip soundtrack for the web traveller. The piece is powered by the energy of browsing – of doing useful things, and of wasting time on the Internet. It is a first-person performance that tackles head-on the old joke about electronic musicians checking their email on stage.
Keledón is an interactive kinetic sculpture from vacuum-formed polyethylene, CNC-cut acrylic, plexiglas and wood, with generative audio, video and light projected from within its body. It is an automaton conceived and modeled algorithmically as a living creature, its visual form inspired by deep-sea bio-illuminescent jellyfish. Keledón is modeled as an open cybernetic system that consists of four parts: aural, visual, kinesthetic and sensory. These components are interconnected through a serial feedback network, in which the audio projection controls the video, the video projection controls the mechanical movement, and the mechanical movement controls the audio, and so forth.
