  The Loop

The Loop explores the possibilities of co-located performance, decentralised composition, and the acoustics of network. This performance begins with a brief improvisation presenting acoustic sources to excite the network. This material is shared, transformed, and reintroduced into the composition. This process continues through successive generations until a predetermined time or a point at which the composition naturally concludes. The result is an integrated meta-instrument and an emergent composition, with no one artist being the sole performer or composer. Remote participants are represented locally by a mono speaker enabling the audiences to hear the transformation of audio through the networked instrument.
