The work is comprised of three soundscapes; ambient environments which are created in order to appear in random succession throughout the composition. The audio blend and the soundscape taxonomy is dependent upon a mechanism which makes random choices, which in their turn trigger audio parameters (such as the attack and volume of a soundscape), through Markovian chain distribution. The transients of the soundscapes start getting disrupted through the mix between one soundscape and another, unraveling their own narrative levels of fantasy
Aris Panagiotidis is a computer programmer. With a deep appreciation for interdisciplinary approaches to expression and problem solving plus a flair for all things creative, he is eager to fuse the deterministic methodologies provided by exact sciences with the subjective process of conceptualization. Aris holds a BSc in Computer Science and has participated in cross-border projects promoting cultural heritage.
Dimitri Batsis is a sound artist and academic researcher. His research covers the field of biological functions in relation to new media and sciences, sound design and interactive systems. His output involves sound installations, performance and video art through audiovisual applications and coding. He creates sound works through studio practices that are preliminarily based on the mutual relationship between sound and image, in audiovisual perception. He holds a PhD in Biomusic (the transformation of biological signals into sound art through research in new mediums) from the Department of Fine Arts and Art Sciences at the University of Ioannina and an MA in Contemporary Arts and Music at Oxford Brookes University.
