adaptation is the first piece of the vivarium album by chdh.
vivarium is a data/video DVD project based on chdh’s performance work. vivarium’s goal is to switch from a live expression form to written and composed pieces. Thanks to the use of mathematical algorithms and physical models, chdh brings a new vision on the practice of data-processing tools in digital creation. The use of audio-visual objects, having a sound and a video component controlled by the same parameters allows an effective management of the relations between the two medias. Each video track of vivarium is composed around a single physical modeling instrument, evolving from passivity to life, instability and mutation, in a slow and hypnotic time.
