Multi-channel audio work encoded for 47 channel The Morning Line Sound System, 30 min
Commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary 

Spin sound composition complements the architecture of "The Morning Line", following the peculiarities of the complicated and detailed space constructed of lattices and cells created by fractal design, and it strives to become an integral part of the solid-state architectural structure.
The composition interprets the space defined by the edifice as one unit. It fills the unfolding symmetries of "The Morning Line" with punctiform harmonies rich in clear sound shapes. Among crystal-shaped bits, it makes slow spatial movements, and its pulsating rhythms evoke sharp, pinlike impulses.
The experience is completed by precisely constructed and abstract rhythmic patterns, which continually change according to an algorithm created by a mathematical formula. They mutate, but in the end they remain recognizable, and they can be memorized. The building blocks - just like the building blocks of "The Morning Line" - are identical and the sound composition constructed by them is perpetually changing, rich in its details, and on closer inspection it proves to be identically patterned.
