Untitled [Bioacoustic Phenomenon] is a live generative cinematic exploration of sonically activated biological events, specifically evolving morphogenetic cellular entities that grow in response to sound vibrations. Out of a primordial hydrodynamic environment cellular life-forms develop and exhibit behavioural “intelligence” using sound as an organising principle and nourishing substance. Immersed in their sonorous habitat, plasmas fluctuate while chromosomal figures reverberate and divide according to their respective bio-resonant frequencies. In this sonic ecosystem, a synaesthetic biological narrative unfolds in relation to the development of specific audio modulations and vibrations.
It uses a variety of techniques to translate sound directly into visual material – from real-time algorithmic sound analysis methods, such as beat detection and Fast Fourier (frequency) analysis, to direct translation of generative sound mapping to the visual output via OSC (Open Sound Control) transmission. A variety of found sound and field recordings form the base materials for the sound design.
Paul Prudence is an artist and real-time visual performer working with generative/computational systems, audio-responsive visual feedback and processed video. He is particularly interested in the ways in which sound, space and form can be synaesthetically amalgamated. He is a writer, researcher and lecturer in the fields of visual music, process art, and computational design.
