PARSEC is a kinetic audio visual machine consisting of 16 identical arms performing a generative composition based on swarm synthesis. Each arm holds two LEDs and a loudspeaker which creates abstract audio visual patterns while being rotated. The core of the installation consists of a swarm synthesizer, 16 identical analogue and modular synthesizers. The synths are programmed to perform swarm like behavior which can also be recognized in the movement and light patterns.
PARSEC was made possible with the generous support of Creative Industries Fund NL, Stichting Stokroos and Het Materiaalfonds voor Beeldende Kunst en Vormgeving.
