In a few seconds across the ocean

Ian Andrews
2004

In a Few Seconds Across the Ocean refers to, and interrogates a number of references from 20th century art that might broadly be described as a "poetics of radio (and noise)" ranging from the Futurist poetry of Marinetti, Klebnikov to Karlheinz Stockhausen’s 1966 work Hymnen: anthems for electronic and concrete sounds (which provides the source of the title). The work utilises a number of generative techniques (random number generation, permutative structures, and graphics/sound interaction) to produce aleatory music, graphics and text. The piece plays continuously in a loop that never repeats in the same way twice. The generative structure is designed to create a multi-channel sound environment where the randomisation of the process distributes the different sound elements throughout the space.
