"Computer Series is a musical and graphic project performed by a computer in an algorithmic environment designed by a human being. Above all, it’s an experiment that shifts the role of the artist to that of an "aesthetician responsible for his algorithm" (A. Moles).
Initially, the work begins with a long phase of development involving many decisions to determine a suf ciently complete and autonomous modular system. The performance is then fully entrusted to the computer which, through its exceptional capacity to generate multiples, is able to combine and permute the data as desired. And potentially reveal some singular combinations that the system’s creator would not have considered? Perhaps also clumsiness or oddities.
Here is a selection of these computer proposals pulled from several captures and grouped together as 10 tracks/10 visuals with no subsequent modi cations (except for editing and mastering). Each track comes from a combination of sequences, sound engines, sound processing and mixing determined by the computer.
This same process was then adapted to generate graphic abstractions using data structures and combining primitive shapes, colors, sizes, layers..."
