Topic: Look: you can hear it! How Chaotic systems can look and sound good

Through a presentation of works Sune will give a glimpse into his work with vision and sound. The traditional hierarchy of creating visuals for music is reversed and the music is generated from the visuals, whether it being digitally generated real time video, electro-mechanical machines or radio frequency noise it all generate sound in ways that are either not intended as such or even considered noise. For many of his works controlled chaos is used in the form of feedback. Feedback generates an almost organic fluidity that is difficult to create using traditional methods of generating visuals, that even translate into interesting sounds.

About the Speaker:
Sune Petersen\’s work life has three facets. Artistic, commercial and educational. His artistic practice mainly evolve around generative video performance and playful performative installations. He has been active in this field since 1997 and has seen and is constantly exploring the technology for new possibilities. A background in science, having studied both physics and computer engineering, in combination with a creative approach to technology, have opened up for commercial work for instance in museums where he creates interactive installations using complex projections and multiple channels of audio to mediate architecture, the history of europe, pixels and inventions, prison life, Japanese cosplay culture and much more. Having been on the forefront in the creative use of technology, Sune has been teaching in different contexts which includes institutions all across Europe and an extensive period at Aalborg University. He often bases his teaching on insights gathered during his commercial and artistic work in order to draw connections between theory and praxis.
