Valse Automatique

Designing the transformation process of live music into an industrially manufactured object.

The project explores how compu­ta­tional musical data can be used to create objects as “finger­prints” of musical scores in the context of an indus­trial manu­fac­turing process. For this purpose Mihalj “MIKI” Kekenj composed and performed five vari­ations of a waltz theme created specific­ally for the event at “MADE” — a plat­form for creative people from different discip­lines in the heart of Berlin.
