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.
