Automatic Orchestra

In collaboration with Julian Hespenheide, David Beermann, Hendrik Heuer, Thomas Hoheisel, Jakob Bak, Dennis Paul

The Automatic Orchestra is an audio installation exploring algorithmic composition and networked music. A common set of rules distributed among a network of MIDI devices opens up a melodic space orchestrated by automatic logic and the artist’s vision. The perpetual interaction among the devices and the interpretation of encoded musical messages blurs the distinctiveness between structured composition and performative improvisation.
