Clouds of overtones
It is sometimes hard to see the true reasons and meaning of events behind multiple versions and interpretations, layers of information and judgments. It seems that technology is capable of helping us to understand the synthetic and refined meaning of the truth, which is revealed by combining analytic data with intuitive and emotional comprehension.
But is technology that impartial? And are we still sensitive?
The performance Clouds of overtones encapsulates our attention with an illusion of the unity of these opposing subjects representing, on the one side, algorithms and robots, and, on the other—sensitivity and ambivalence. Verify yourself.
Clouds of overtones is a multidimensional sonor with an undefined pitch. The effect is produced by the vibration of strings under a contactless influence of a variable magnetic field.
