Black-box resonators: XYZ / ZXY / YZX

The black-box resonators are created from three identical speaker-boxes; X, Y & Z. Each box was cut following a unique cutting template using angels taken from technical-drawing tools. One element from each box is used to construct the individual Black-box resonators. Using different angels of the identical speaker-boxes generates a sculptural form visually akin to early cubist still life with guitar paintings by Picasso, Braque & Gris.

The audio loops are created in a similar cut & re-construct manner, mutating & manipulating audio samples from open-share files. The compositions are created using prime numbers as defining factors, influencing individual elements & the time of each audio loop.
