about

Algorithmic Music based on Gumowski-Mira attractors

This music is based on a strange attractor named after Igor Gumowski and Christian Mira, CERN physicists who discovered it during their research in nonlinear dynamic systems. The surprisingly beautiful graphical representations of this kind of attractor seem to resemble plancton lifeforms from some mathematical ocean.

"Impossible Music" contains 16 recordings of live improvisations with a software that is based on these attractors. Attractor data were made audible by a digital piano and a sampler usually loaded with percussion samples.

The improvisations were recorded in 1996, most were done together with Matthias Ebbinghaus (who controlled piano pedals and did the live mix).
