Computer Music Studies

INFO


'Computer Music Studies' is a series of works based on digital feedback. This is a generative music project based on "No Input Mixing Board Digital" (NIMBD). This non-linear process became known thanks to Toshimaru Nakamura's work in the late 90's. Sound is generated in an autonomous way when an audio output returns to an input generating what is called as an internal digital feedback which in many cases is nonlinear and mostly difficult to control. The results are autonomous digital sounds specific to digital equipment. Machine music for machines.

VIDEO


The video track, created by hand frame by frame after spitting the sound track in fragments of around 41.67 milliseconds, shows what's playing. What you see and what you hear are exactly the same data, without going through any kind of generative process or arbitrary visualization. That is, the piece consists of the same files saved in two different formats—an audio format (aiff) and a visual format (jpeg).
