The Artistic Research ‘Tipping Points’ is situated in the field of live-electronics and is driven by a research question that emerges from a deep fascination with the timbres and sonic behaviors that appear as chaotic processes transition towards states of instability:
‘How can the exploration of tipping points in chaotic processes inform the development of new electronic music instruments, compositional strategies, and performances to enhance sonic expression?’
The interdisciplinary research involves instrument design,
composition, improvisation, and performance in a context where the sonic output will be inherently unpredictable.
This untamed quality also instigates the poetic, fragile sonic expressions where resonances deteriorate into complex modulations. The consequences of these instabilities play out in surprising ways, opening up new perspectives on instruments as pliable entities, engaged through influence instead of control within compositions that focus on exploration and discovery.
