tin birds (2014)

four-channel generative audio installation
coded with Plogue Bidule

tin birds is a four-channel generative audio installation. All of the sounds comprising the piece are being synthesized and controlled in real-time. Each moment's sonic makeup is determined by a complex network of math and signal routing, but at the core of the work, there are two instruments making sound: one which generally sings like a miniature Hammond organ, high and contemplative, but prone to occasional fits; and one which is continually winding itself up and down – Sisyphus on a bicycle.
