In The Invisibles the core of the interface is a sound-programming environment that alters conventional forms of musical composition through the incorporation of algorithmically based processes (Max MSP). The user navigates the software’s internal intelligence less like a composer and more like a programmer, adjusting various parameters to indirectly influence the system’s internal network dynamics. Mutations emerge when the system is triggered by the input of various sensors. A current pattern runs back through the process and simultaneously forward to the formation of a new one. Interlacing of multiple strata could be understood as a form of artificial synesthesia. Connective tissue is formed through graphic relationshipsas a medium of exchange between different axiomatic infrastructures. Cellular relationships are based on a differential speed distribution that affects the rotations of the joints in the skeletal field. Speed of rotation is derived from a weighted average based on the speed of each of the three attractors. They act as input points for data from the changing sound frequencies bred through a process of granular synthesis (as part of the overall installation). Closest to the attractor, a zone of influence and corresponded inflection is indexed in the skin of each individual cell.
