The Celestial Random

The 4 channel sound installation translates cosmic rays and radiation into an audible display. The resulting generative composition is spatialized by custom-made loudspeakers. This piece is based on a discussion of the concept of soft errors, which originates from the field of computer science. In the work, however, this concept is poetically expanded and placed in an evolution-theoretical context that critically addresses the question of mutation.
