Spheroid (multi-channel live computer music performance)

Spheroid is a live computer music work that uses improvised performance and algorithmic processes to compose spatial texture. The spine of the work is a snowballing irregular loop which sequences, deforms and attracts material as it revolves. The music seeks to evoke a form of post-natural organicity, questioning categorical distinctions between the artificial and the natural, and human and technological agency. The spatial topography created navigates territories of texture perception, where sounds group and evolve in a fleeting, amorphous manner. Spheroid was created as part of a Leverhulme Research Fellowship project about spatial texture synthesis in composition and performance.
