Nothingness is Unstable

Live electronic performance with life-form sounds articulated by large banks of complex digital resonator circuits, shaped with analog acoustic sources, and diffused into space with the unique Geluso 3D Sound Object.

Nothingness usually collapses into something-ness—the phenomenal particularities of experience. Musical particularities—musics of many nows, containing fine structures with created pasts and futures, also spring from initially undefined singularities of experience into multiple dimensions of mutual interactivity. In this work, Rosenboom's drawings Natural Scores and harmonic cycle system Earth Encomium are are interpreted in an exploration of this paradigm in live electronic performance. Life-form sounds collected in Indonesia and the US are articulated by large banks of complex digital resonator circuits, shaped by performing actions with analog acoustic sources and/or instruments, and diffused into space with the unique Geluso 3D Sound Object to create an immersive musical wrapping.
