ABSTRACT

PROJECT 1111 is both an audio/visual piece and a live performance containing 4 sub-pieces (0001, 0010, 0100 and 1000) with a duration of 4 minutes for each.
PROJECT 1111 is an exploration of randomness through sounds & visuals. Each source of sounds and visuals generated is based on chance. Then, the system controls more or less the chaos generated by these source to create an immersive A/V experience.

It has been submitted to Prix Ars Electronica this year 2013 in the category Digital Musics and Sound Art

DESCRIPTION & DETAILS

Working at the crossroads of sounds & visuals, PROJECT is questioning people senses by throwing them massive flows of minimalistic and digital based stimuli.
Each element is generated and minimalism is explored by stimulating the visual matrix and the sound dsp using pure algorithm constraining, controlling and driving more or less a random source.

What could be more minimalistic than the computer itself, without the human?
The main principle of this autonomous installation sits in the fact it actually doesn’t need us.
Would these stimuli exist without us ?

It is both an ode to minimalism and raw/bare electronic hardware playing with us and also a base of a long road I just began inside my inner electronic territories.

Project 1111 is based on Max6 framework’s patches.

VIDEOS

This first video is an excerpt. Please scroll down to watch & hear a whole audio-visual capture of PROJECT1111 running.
Based on generative algorithm, PROJECT1111 doesn’t play twice the same content. I only recorded it because I submitted it to Prix Ars Electronica. Indeed, this is a piece that has to be living, not recorded.
