In December 2018, the third edition of the festival »inSonic« took place at the ZKM. »inSonic« is a showcase for genre-spanning artistic confrontations with new media technologies and innovative concepts, which will be explored in lectures, hands-on demonstrations, concerts and live coding performances.

Are there inherent spatial properties to algorithms? For example, what is the relationship between the iterations of code, the behaviour of multi-agent systems, the exploration of databases, and their inscription into the perceptual, auditive space? We were interested in pieces that use generative processes to produce space, rather then applying a secondary “spatialisation” procedure. We were looking for approaches that treat spatiality as a critical phenomenon emerging from the work with algorithms, for sonic artefacts that probe concepts of spatiality through embedding in algorithmic processes.
