Wire Spill is a multimedia work for kalimba, electroacoustics, and digital animation. The simple melody serves as an anchor for the electronic’s complex tapestry of reversed and detuned kalimba samples.
Noise is an ubiquitous component of the music, and shifts from background to foreground throughout the work.
The visual component is a generative digital animation, inspired by the works of Jared Tarbell. The small, random motions of lines and particles combine to form complex, ever-shifting structures.
