Exploring algorithmic composition and networked music.
“Automatic Orchestra” is an audio installation orchestrated by networked machines and people.
For the duration of the Resonate 2015 festival (http://www.resonate.io), an orchestra, comprised of 12 PROTOSEQ units, was programmed, equipped and assembled into a networked organism adapted to the site-specific situation.
For Resonate'15 – Serbia, Belgrade.

Ra is a sound object / synthesizer which uses laser for scanning the irregularities of the surface of the pyrite disc and further transforms this data to produce sound. Pyrite disc is a rare form of pyrite which is crystallised in radial shape (as unusual disc spherulites) which also was named ‘pyrite suns’ or ‘pyrite dollars’. The only deposit where pyrites of such morphology are found is in Illinois state (USA). Pyrite suns were formed around 300 million years ago.
