Experimental Computer Music audio performance based on infernal repetitions of bass lines and unpredictable bifurcations. A speed sonic trip through chaotic labyrinths with dead end road, strange noise attractors and acid dimensions. An army of raw saw wave synthesizers shooting in your face.
"In 1963 Edward Lorenz, working as a meteorologist, evolved a topological model for “describing” various state-changes in a thermodynamic system during the onset of turbulence. This model, which ostensibly plots sets of coordinates of evolving “chaos,” exposes unanticipated patterns in a seemingly random constellation of effects graphed in two-dimensional phase-space. The locus of these emergent “patterns” is known as the “strange attractor” and has a characteristic visual representation which resembles a convoluted multi-skeined cross-section of something whose contour suggests a Möbius strip or feedback-loop set in a kind of oscillation around an imaginary axis—imaginary because it only exists as a product of a statistical procedure. The distinctive feature of the Strange Attractor is that the patterns it describes never intersect—their vectors are non-repeating." (Iza Tarasewicz, THE STRANGE ATTRACTORS Louis Armand)
