Hugo Paquete / Institute of viral sonology / Phonos 01 (2014)

This album experiment start as a call from the director of the of Institute of viral sonology Hugo Paquete. This call consists in exploring the potentiality of the computer as an automatic machine to generate compositional material and aesthetics content base on stochastic probabilities. The sonic material is past for a series of transformations base in algorithmics and traditional methods of composition develop by Hugo Paquete.

Full Description

Hugo Paquete (b 1979) Intermedia and sound artist, which in his research uses concepts about space, entropy, noise and microtonality as a visual and audible ecosystem according to spatial and psychological characteristics, (acoustic, architectonic, sculptural, perspective, communicative, evocative and environmental). The result is an audible interaction, open and indeterminate to the present time scales nano and macro in an ontological level. Territory of hyper-sensation and experimentation, observation and enclose the body in the listening act, turning it active and explored referential and resonator propulsive in a psycho-acoustic level. In his works he uses technical elements and practices from the field recording to computer generated sound synthesizing and audio spacialization. Denoting interest in stochastic probabilities between computer algorithmic and programming interaction with software and object oriented composition and performative expression.
