"J'entends du bruit..."

"J'entends du bruit..." explores computer-generated textures of polyrhythmic transformation and harmonic noise systems. The piece was developed on the Polyrhythmicon, a computer hyper-instrument created by the composer, which generates complex rhythmic transformations in real time. The work is in two sections each exploring aspects of rhythmic accumulation. While rhythm provides formal cohesiveness and generational structure, filtered noise acts as a type of harmonic/contrapuntal element, fluctuating between varying states of color, gestural clarity, and density.
