Algorithmic Serial Works

babelcast

information abduction and reduction

The babelcast is an algorithmic, computer-generated podcast series created from fragmented and distorted sounds of U.S. and World leaders. Juxtaposed and mixed with dynamic noise textures, the resulting ambient soundscape offers a unique musical perspective on mass media, language, and current events. Each edition is built exclusively from sounds harvested within a defined period of days.

babelcast-zoetrope

animated information abduction and reduction

The babelcast-zoetrope is an algorithmic, computer-generated video podcast series created from fragmented and distorted sounds and images of U.S. and World leaders. Juxtaposed and mixed with dynamic noise textures, the resulting ambient soundscape offers a unique musical perspective on mass media, language, and current events. This video version adds algorithmically selected and manipulated moving images and animation. Each edition is built exclusively from sounds and images harvested within a defined period of days.

telequalia

cybernetic serenades

The telequalia offers digital word-paintings of computer-rendered readings. Employing excerpts from classic, public-domain texts from the Project Gutenberg, environmental sounds from The Freesound Project, and ambient and algorithmic textures created with athenaCL, telequalia is an experimental, algorithmic, computer-generated podcast.

This project employs processed (creatively transformed) sounds drawn from The Freesound Project. These sounds are used under the terms of the Creative Commons Sampling Plus 1.0 license, where the following links serve as attribution for the original source sounds.
