for Julia Kent (Cello)
Origin is a generative and interactive video created for Julia Kent, cello composer and player, so that she can play it while she performs. The video is generated live by an algorithm programmed to be sensitive to the spectral dimensions of the sounds produced by Julia. It has its own unpredictable behaviors, but always reacts to the music, in different and subtle ways. The algorithm of Origin is inspired by the dynamics of black holes, both limits and origins of the universe, on the verge of which very powerful forces taking place here and now — among which music itself — generate complex, delicate and unstable shapes.
