Brian Alexander : Object Clock
Object Clock
The Object Clock is a variable/generative physically based metronome.
None The Object Clock is a variable/generative physically based metronome. It is designed as an immersive experience which loosens our minute/hour/day logic and conditioned view of the world. It is a distilled, playable vignette of a coin caught in a clothes dryer or a dishwasher tapping a spatula as it runs. The video illustrates this with light reactive sensors, modular synthesized voicing and two units in unison.

My pursuit is to loosely outline perceived phenomena, to develop the tools and conditions for emergent expression, and to allow that expression to grow unencumbered to a point of perceived resolution or shared understanding.
