Distant Island Dreams

A Generative Sound Installation by Samuel Barnes.

The installation existed concealed in the two separate exhibition spaces, and surfaced intermittently between scheduled performances at WSD2013. It was designed to create a mood and ambience, connecting the two very different spaces and emphasising their acoustics – providing a coherency across the variety of work exhibited by international practitioners. The software was programmed to generate spontaneous musical material, based on strict musical rules and in response to the number of people within each space.
