Series of installation works in homage to György Ligeti’s Poème Symphonique
Coincidence Engines is a series of sound installations conceived in homage to the Poème Symphonique of twentieth century Hungarian composer György Ligeti, who used metronomes not simply to keep musical time, but to generate sonic events in and of themselves. Extending and developing this approach, Coincidence Engines employs a multitude of dynamically modulated timekeeping devices to explore themes of regimentation, multiplicity, (im)perfection and entropy.
