Identity kaleidoscope


This composition is based on the data collected from artists around the globe (most of whom left Russia after the war in Ukraine started) who responded to two questions: how do they identify themselves in adjectives and nouns. This data was sonified using an ML algorithm and incorporated into a Max/MSP patch designed to find similarities in the answers.

The music surrounding the data was improvised and recorded in one take on an audio cassette. The recording took place in Tbilisi, Georgia
