Construction in Kneading
[Тэкст даступны толькі на англійскай мове] Construction in Kneading is a live generative audiovisual work. It is a speculative inquiry into a virtual life form based on the Mandelbox, an n-dimensional fractal inspired by the Mandelbrot set. Its recursion formula resembles the actions of kneading dough in bread making.

All material is derived from the Mandelbox through a live “audiovisualisation”, generating both sound and moving image in real-time without either following the other as in most VJ practice and sound visualisations. No pre-recorded audio samples, conventional synthesis methods, pre-rendered movies nor textures are used. Data from the system is used as audio at different scales of time e.g. at sample rate (a technique known as audification or non-standard synthesis) creating timbre and pitch, and at control rate creating rhythms and phrases.

An increasing number of dimensions of the system are revealed as the work progresses through its three parts, beginning with a line (1D), followed by a slice (2D), and ending with a space (3D). A performance consists of an improvised attempt to understand and control the emergent system.
