The core of STATES consists of two pricipals
- Self balancing systems (Algorithmic)
- Changing of states (Interaction)
The self balancing system relies on a audio feedback loop that incorporates phasing and ringmodulation. During the workshop I will play around with various modifications. There are already multiple versions of the setup (There is an analog version and a digital version) and it's possible to vary the amount of feedback channels and settings of the modulations.
In the performance version of STATES the changing of the states is 'performed' by the artist himself. During the workshop I would like to experiment with different implementations of audience interaction with the system. The controls will be 'limited' and 'obscure' as I'm not aiming for an understanding of the system but rather a playful exploration of it's possibilities.
