Presented by Nonsequitur. Composer and sound artist David Dunn presents works highlighting complexity in natural and human-made systems. These compositions reveal and amplify hidden auditory features of the natural world, sounds outside of normal human perception, interactions between artificial intelligence systems and living creatures, and models of chaotic change endemic to the kinds of forces currently shaping our environment. Along with three short pre-recorded works, Dunn will also perform Thresholds & Fragile States, using self-built non-linear chaotic oscillators capable of generating an infinite variety of “auditory behaviors” emergent from their status as autonomous electronic systems.
