Chronotop Installation, Ambisonic Tape

The Chronotope Installation is based on a time-delayed feedback network. The structure of the network is composed of different nodes connected by delay lines ranging from 50 milliseconds up to 20 seconds. The control parameters of the nodes are threshold, attack, and decay time. The control parameters of the delay lines are delay time and attenuation. The network is excited by a short percussion signal. I aligned the parameters in such a way that different sonic layers emerge and change through the piece enhancing the static character by a progressively changing transformation. The movements and the permanent rotations of the sound layers in the three-dimensional space simulate the feedback loops in the time and shape the sound plastically and vividly.
