1. Whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government.

  2. Planes, missiles and other hardware that deflect or otherwise avoid radar detection were key in the race for world supremacy. Detection avoidance, or stealth technology, was one of many ‘developments’ to emerge from the Cold War.

    In the Stealth project, two grids of triggers target and launch missiles across an abstracted 3D space at each other, attempting to avoid radar detection and annihilate the opposition.

    However, in contrast to the Mutually Assured Destruction madness of the arms race, the piece acts as a collaborative spatial musical instrument – each ‘missile’ emits sounds based on its relative position and the conditions it encounters along its trajectory.

  4. “Celeste Motus” is an audiovisual suite in three movements.

    This video shows some excerpts from the suite, captured in realtime during a studio session (because of the capturing process there are some drops in the framerate, but the realtime version runs at 60 frames per second).

    Both the music and the visuals are generated in realtime using the input of two electric instruments (a wind instrument and a piano).
    The original setup is meant to be a three screens span mode resulting in a panoramic 4:1 view.

    The theme of the suite is the growth of consciousness, a growth that develops during the three movements.
