Sonar Istanbul 2020
sound design, audio programming,,music
"In an age where we accept the mechanics of our organic bodies and try to turn our mechanic productions into organic, ”The units” , by applying a stochastic code in a contemporary fashion to its own so called organic mechanical structure, creates an observable universe. These units which move in this universe where repetition only occurs when reached infinity, are in front of our eyes as the universe’s very simple principle.
Designed as 6 different series , ”The Refract Units” is the second one of the ”The Units” installations. It is an interactive robotic happening which allows people to experience the perceptual refractions."
The random data that controls the mirrors is integrated into a custom-made PureData patch. This allows for pre-recorded sounds to be triggered and processed in real-time, based on the data received.
