Shorts/ experiments

2008-2009 / in collaboration with Michael Wilhelmi /  NewOpenForm

“NewOpenForm” is a program for building pieces from acoustic sound samples and video samples (soon photos and text) online; in the process the normally exclusive act of creation is thereby opened up into the creation of a collective work.

The pieces created with “NewOpenForm” take the form of a flowchart – symbols representing audio samples that are connected with arrows. The program follows the arrows’ course using greater or lesser degrees of probability as it goes from one sound to another.
