David Muth with music by Antti Tolvi:
Y-Division [ ]] (2023)

YEAR: 2023 | 4K | COLOUR | STEREO | 07’30”

The piece “Y-Division [ ]]” features a composition by sound artist Antti Tolvi: iterations of a distinct melodic motif are being played at slightly different speeds, resulting in a composition both harmonically simple and rhythmically complex. The generative animation by David Muth echos the timing of the melody: minimal shapes assemble themselves in nested ways with each iteration of the motif.
