Considered as a compositional medium, generative musical automata are musical works embodied in aesthetically relevant physical forms.
Analog voltage-controlled patches.
This installation is a wall-mounted, interactive, electro-acoustic, generative musical automata, controlled by an Arduino that drives servo-controlled shakers, electromagnetic buzzers, and a three-color LED. Environmental inputs from light and temperature shape the large-scale generation of dynamic, generative rhythms and textures. The Stillchime works are indoor wind chimes, providing hours of subtle, constantly changing aural ambience.
