Jury Selections

Simple Harmonic Motion #12 for 16 Percussionists


Media performance [Turkey]

A live performance by percussionists and light. Part of a series investigating complexityarising from repetitive simplicity – specifically the emergence of complex behavior through the interaction of simple multi-layered rhythms. The performance is a ritualistic ode to chaos and order, inspired by the collisions between man and machine; the harmonies, tensions and conflicts between science, technology, culture, tradition and religion.
