Reviewer One

Although there was quite an extensive amount of technical explanation before we got to the music, it was interesting to watch the piece emerge through the time-lapse process. While you describe the use of the Stravinsky quote as a restriction it is also evident from the video that this limited data set provides an affordance for sonification – a process where the connection between the data and the sound is usually opaque – that allows the listener / viewer to follow the connectivity. Indeed, it affords a way into the notion of musical listening as problem solving, of identifying patterns, that brings that kind of aesthetic reaction to the fore in a very dramatic and stark way – and in another way, the visual cues and their dramatic musical responses constrains the listener’s response within that problem solving mode.
