The objective here was to excite transitory forms and engage with the unpredictability of generative systems. For this purpose I experimented with visual and sonic modalities, seeking a multi-layer landscape that might exist in a sphere of reflections and repetitions.

The sonic portion of the project is composed utilising the phasing technique. Multiple bowed guitar lines in a descending 5th sequence were recorded in isolation and at random tempos. The final form was achieved by summing the unsynchronised tracks. Visuals, similarly, were created by mixing multiple scaled versions of a video and distributing the layers around a circle in 3D space.
