Walking the slackrope between the trees outside my trailer
in the Amsterdamse Westport (ADM).. Beneath a somewhat random selection of
recent and more historical documentation. Search the site's other pages for collective projects.
NOTE that many of the sound-files are compressed as .ogg. Certain browsers do not support this format.
I recommend to get a browser which supports free software.

This project explores orbits and oscillations in 8 dimensions
using the octonion algebra and its derivation algebra. Audio and video are created by projections
to lower dimensions. It is suitable for a higher number of monitors. This project is primarily aimed at live performance,
but for documentation purposes I have produced the following tracks mixed to stereo
Since an Image , voice and computer, text from Plato's Timaeus
Concerning The Size Of The Sun, voice and computer, text from Heraclitus' Fragments
Seven Sphere Frog Trance, computer
photo from the audio visual performance at xCoAx, Bergamo 2016. The piece shown at xCoAx included vocals, dance and text
fragments from Plato's Timaeus.

Quasicrystal Sound Field 1 is an interactive sound
installation. The sound synthesis is based on the Quasicrystal
Phasefunction first published in 2009. Please refer to http://www.eyemaginary.com/Portfolio/QuasicrystalSampling.html
The Quasicrystal Phasefunction offer a rather simple possibility to
program these new patterns. Aperiodic order is characteristic for
the structure of quasicrystals.
Audio excerpts: early excerpts from studio recordings QCtrio1.mp3
here is a simple example of chuck code for the Quasicrystal phase
the Quasicrystal Phasefunction f(z) -1 to 1 and -i to i,
10-fold rotational symmetry,
red is minimum (-10), blue 0 and green is maximum (10)

and a sound excerpt from early studio recording
Freely modified phase functions:
These pictures do no longer plot mathematical quasicrystals, but still there is both order and aperiodicity Number 13 Number 7
Sporbits are based on bits of mathematics by NJ Wildberger, especially orbits of his Spread Polynomials

ChucK-code for a microtonal piece which can be running for at least a
few years without repetitions, classical fm set in a rational-number realm
Recordings with DFF on metal sheets
update november 2013 - Steel sheet and voice :YellowLeaves.mp3
april 2013 - Brass sheet and Electronics : Magicicade.mp3
DFF on his rather new brass sheet, the interactive synthesizer units
are build in Max, using fractal samples and a spectral 13 tone harmonic system.
The squirrel Canons:
The harmonic movement in these compositions is generated by traversing twigs and branches of
the Stern-Brocot-tree via matrix multiplication.
((this matrix multiplication also allowed some paths between fractions which actually do not directly belong to the
Stern-Brocot-tree :: multiplying by the "wrong" inverse matrices allowed some circular movements and sort of labyrinths))
The over all form is somewhat fugue like, though microtonal indeed. .. I did an mp3 compression of 320kbs to give space
for the subtle dissonances.
play-back advice: low volume and quality amplification:
3 short compositions based on modular arithmetic with prime numbers
====> ChucK code
PrimeCircle - quadratic residue
PrimePop - cubic residue
PrimeOrder - quadratic residue
based on samples generated from the mandelbrot-set algorithm -
orbiting points close to the boundary + some spectral arithmetic.

** Das Mensch ist etwas dass übertrieben werden muss
** Überhund Überdosis ** Erhebt eure Herzen , erhebt
eure Beine , wer seine Ziele nähe komt der tantzt ** Licht
bin ich, AAAch wäre ich Dunkel ** Was sind die Menschen
für den Affen ** Ich Zweifler aber ziehe es in
Zweifel, dafür komme ich aus Europa ** ** Kommt nun
die Nacht ***

The world is only end
apocalyptic sugar drugs eaten
with the speed of fiction
we all love the end
it is hot
it is the process
it is legal
it's a commercial
but now the end has lost the world
madly in love
the end has lost it self
