Analogic Composition is a collaboration between Milan Kristl – playing the analog instruments – and Borut Savski – playing the computer with some special sensorized electronics – called an “analogic sequencer”. It basically receives trigger data from two kinds of sensors (IR and microphone) and outputs a resultant trigger pulse from a specific combination of separately counted pulses of the two sensors. The result is a kind of sequence of pulses with a bit complex (=unpredictable) combined in relation to the original triggers. This is usually used in Savski's “autonomuos” robotic objects.
Analogic Composition was a performance aimed at producing a new electronic music piece for radioCona. Performed at the Cirkulacija 2 space at the Rog Factory in Ljubljana on 6 November 2009.
Music is Dead - Long Live the Music! is a recording of a live performance by Borut Savski that took place at Jakopičeva Galerija in Ljubljana on 27 September 2010 as part of the series of Sound Explicit events produced by the Zavod P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. The occasion was also used to fullfill an agreement with art project radioCona to produce a new electronic music piece.The approach was that of a basic functionality & relationship of sound and generated video. The video was a combination of three transparent layers modulated (=zoomed & rotated) by generated two-channel, sinusoidal low frequency sounds. High frequencies were added by residual switching noises produced on the chopping of low frequencies. The rotation and zooming of the three visual layers produced moire effects – driven by the sound itself. Sound as a tool to produce visuals. Superposition of multiple two-dimensional layers to produce an idea, a glimpse of a three-dimensional object – the body. The tools used were Pure Data and GEM with an arduino controller interface.
