CODE APTITUDE (2017)

 
 
/* notae technico-hyleticae */
“code aptitude” meditates on the relationship between periodicity and intentionality through the filter of sonic materiality. its form emerges from the recorded sounds of a cricket chirping arranged in counterpoint with those of a telegraph signaling. this pre-existent material is transformed by means of techniques derived immanently from the analog audio devices that transduce it, as well as digital effects of pitch and duration. the resulting imbrication of concrete signals is then ornamented with a synthesized drone characterized by mutating ratios that mirror those animating the digital effects.
