  • Michael Flora updated the Artwork Aves
    Aves, 4-channel sound installation. (2015) Aves is a quadraphonic sound piece which simulates the flocking behavior of birds. The behaviors are generated by a flocking algorithm in the software environment Pure Data, which controls the "bird's" frequency (pitch), amplitude (volume), and position in the four loudspeakers. The behavior of the flock arises from the interaction of four individual "birds" adhering to a set of simple rules:  1. The number of neighbors each "bird" consults while floc…
  • Michael Flora updated the Artwork Trestle
    "Trestle," 4-channel sound installation, Northern Pacific Railyard, Brainerd, MN. Sound excerpt. Artist Pete Driessen commissioned two sound works to accompany the monumental site specific installations, "Trestle" and "Trestle Worker," reflecting the architectural spatiality of the former rail yard spaces. The composition for the longer "Trestle" sculpture is meant to be physically supportive and sensually immersive, while promoting the affective experience of the viewer within the installation…
  • Michael Flora updated the Artwork 出現
    出現, 4-channel sound installation with fog machine. (2015) Emergent behavior appears when a number of smaller or simpler entities operate in an environment, forming more complex behavior as a collective. "Shutsugen" is a generative piece that uses sound and fog to explore such phenomenon. The audio component is realized through custom designed software using algorithmic processes to mimic the behavior of self-organizing systems. Similarly, a fog machine produces a cloud of fog whose structure…

(2015) Emergent behavior appears when a number of smaller or simpler entities operate in an environment, forming more complex behavior as a collective. 出現 is a generative sound piece that explores such phenomenon. Originally exhibited as a multi-channel sound piece at Tuck Under Projects, Minneapolis, Minnesota from July 30, 2015 - August 30, 2015.  ***Note: The following excerpt is a stereo mix and therefore does not capture the diver…
  • Michael Flora updated the Artwork Nothing III
    6min excerpt from Nothing Nothing is a new work for sound and movement by composer Michael Flora and Butoh artist Gadu. Flora will employ a variety of digital synthesis methods and processing of acoustic sounds to create a piece that explores a play of colors, textures, and overarching shape. In resonance with the soundscape, Gadu creates another layer by exploring movements and space.  Nothing is not anything; something that does not exist; someone or something of no valueor size; nothi…
