Closing concert of the sound installation 'pulsarAUTOMATA'

The closing concert of the installation pulsarAutomata features an extended live version of the work performed by the composer Marcin Pietruszewski.

The focus point for the work of pulsarAutomata are processes of computed listening and re-synthesis. While computed listening categorises and fragments the auditory sensation, re-synthesis takes on integrative labour of glueing back together disjointed parts into new forms. The live version of pulsarAutomata stages an iteration of this procedure.

ON INSTALLATION

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.

The installation is available for visitors on Thursday the (21st) 10 — 14 and Friday (22nd) 10 — 15.
