The music is based on granular frequency modulation techniques and uses spectral shifts to create continously changing harmonic movements. The music is played back on a stereo or quadrophonic speaker system with extra sub bass.

Although the music and visuals are both software generated they are not synced to each other. The phasing effects which are inherent in the sound and visuals are also translated into the spacial set up of the installation. The spectator is in the center of the composition with the optics in front and the sound around him. His effort to bring together the disparate elements is the key to rotationen’s concept of confusing the standards of audivisual preception in an aesthetically appealing way.

The visuals only make sense when they are processed in real time with the appropriate frame rate. Videos cannot really translate that. But these clips give a hint:… (to be posted soon)
