Autogenous Noise 自體噪音

Medium:Interactive audio-visual


秋田昌美曾說「超現實主義涉及到無意識。噪音是原始的,是音樂的集體意識。」本件生成式影音作品結合即時音訊回授與自動運作系統,試圖去控制不斷變化、演進的反饋噪音與其中的不可預測性,並且透過計算相位差的方式,將聲音顆粒視覺化。發聲即是形式;如果我們將聲音視為「時間的產物」,那麼回授(feedback)的現象,似乎在聲響本身與環境間創造了特殊的關係。雖然是透過回授機制自動生成,但我們仍可透過不同方式去與其互動,好似這些聲音有了自我意志與生命。在失控的邊界去干擾聲響的流動,我們或多或少也在與難以預測的機率即興演出,而在最終輸出的聲響與操作者輸入的指令間,仍可察覺其中交互影響的關聯。

Merzbow has said that "Surrealism is also reaching unconsciousness.Noise is the primitive and collective consciousness of music." This work is a project combined real-time audio feedback and self-organization system in an interactive way, trying to control the unpredictability and diversity with endless and evolving feedback effects, at the mean time visualizing the feedback noise through calculating the phase differences. “Sound as form, form as sound.” If we consider sound as “creatures of time", then feedback seems to create a special relationship between sounds itself and the environment. Although the distorted and spacious effects are automatically generated by the sound itself, we can still interact with it as the sound is alive. The interoperation between emergent behaviors and edge of chaos makes the feedback system is more of less out of control, which means we improvise with the unpredictability. However, when people improvise with self-organization feedback system but still can feel the relation between instructions and the output sounding.

Please share how you get or what you are mainly working for if available, Max/MSP is not popular in Taiwan so your sharing will be very helpful for me to gain more ideas and improve my own works. Thanks.
