pulsarAUTOMATA — a pluriphonic sound installation

OPENING EVENT

The opening event features talks by Prof. Peter Nelson and Marcin Pietruszewski, and a text on the origins of Pulsar Synthesis written especially for this occasion by Curtis Roads.

The technical point of departure for the installation is a process of auditory modelling of historical sound recordings of pulsar synthesis, a technique originally developed by Curtis Roads and popularised in his book Microsound. Integrating a novel sound synthesis design, a machine listening techniques, and an original spatialisation score, the work probes the possibility of the computational description of timbre (MPEG-7) as a form and material building compositional approach.

The work of pulsarAutomata restates temporal, spatial and qualitative relationships between multiple renderings of a singular auditory model. Two sets of sound inputs composed by Florian Hecker and Marcus Schmickler with original Pulsar Generator and The New Pulsar Generator (nuPg) programs serve as a raw material — a template — for the processes of timbre description and re-synthesis. The process of computed listening categorises and fragments the auditory sensation into a multifarious set of non-congruent descriptors. Re-synthesis attempts to integrate this complex; glue it together into a new object of listening.

After the opening, the installation will be available for visitors on Thursday the (21st) 10 — 14 and Friday (22nd) 10 — 15. The installation culminates with a live performance of the work 'pulsarAutomata' by Marcin Pietruszewski (https://facebook.com/events/2246131225601317/)
