The generative composition Exile and Other Syndromes is part of an augmented book project that responds to the current indisposition of migration, mobility, placeless-ness and nomadism, which are the impulses of a contemporary condition that eventually blurs the boundaries between the local and the global, the digital and the corporeal, the private and the public, or the intimate and the dehumanizing spaces, instilling a sense of semantic fatigue. The composition aims to transmute the contemporary city’s volatile, oppressing and tensed environments to encourage the contemplation and poetic musing of the listener navigating the intercepting urban spaces. The work develops fluid sculptural form of sound in a closely mediated interaction with sound-generated text patterns framing the contemplation of a nomadic listener as an artifact using an AI algorithm to read and transform the book’s content into live visuals. The performance of the work incorporates multichannel live projection of the visuals on multiple screens augmented with multi-channel sound. This specific method of artistic intervention examines the way memory, imagination and subjectivity of an itinerant listener frames the character of sound in the context of intensified urban interaction, mobility and nomadism.
