Chuan

An interesting result of the data reassignment, especially when transformed into 3-dimensional morphologies, are the repetitive data accumulations in parallel strata, which are caused by the analysis of the sound according to different time windows. The strata generation has a tendency to be linear, however shifts are occurring at intervals which realign the data according to the harmonic transformations of the sound sample.

For the piece Chuan, the human voice has been analysed with a relatively short time frame, which focuses the analysis onto the guttural sounds rather than on the longer lasting harmonics. The geometry results in a mostly vertical lattice, with complex joints at the points where a shift occurs from one alignment towards the next.
