Zavoloka & Kotra "Graftal"

Zavoloka & Kotra

Multi-channel audio work encoded for 47 channel The Morning Line Sound System.

Taking inspiration from computer graphics, mathematical chaos theories and modern techno culture, Zavoloka & Kotra try to explore the possibilities of stochastic sound, rhythmic probabilities through context sensitive parametric compositions.

Graftal is the sound of a constant change, whose behavior is intrinsically non-deterministic for listeners, partly sporadic and not intermittent. Risk.

The shape of the sounds has been defined by a large number of rhythmic phrases together with a set of special production rules, which created axioms. These axioms were the sources of Zavoloka & Kotra’s quasi-random and highly complex sound structures.

You can still listen full composition in The Morning Line sculpture with 47 speakers at Schwarzenbergplatz in Vienna, Austria (until 23rd of November 2012).

This is an excerpt of 31-minutes track.
