‘recursive behaviors’, in more than one sense, investigates a mutual
space where humans and machines mingle and exchange sonic materials with
one another. machines infused with chaotic processes, allowed to follow
their own strange and unstable logic. as one encounters these
shapeshifting entities, riddled with unpredictabilities, one soon
realizes that they can merely be infuenced and explored, but never fully

the machines develop their own internal sonic language. a lexicon and
syntax of sound, at times playing fragile melodies, other times
developing textural structures, locked into semi-repetitive rhythms.
timbres emerging from the intertwined recursions that form the backbone
of their internal wiring. machines able to analyze their own actions and
adapt behavioral patterns. machines that hum, sing, mumble and scream.

‘recursive behaviors’ started out with extended recordings of these
machines, letting them act out in uninterrupted passages of sonic
expression. these recordings formed the backbone of each of the pieces,
as a opening statement waiting for a response. my initial counter took
the shape of cello improvisations, complementing the electronic textures
with slow moving, sorrowful drones. this resulted in a back and forth
between the calls of the cybernetic machines and a range of acoustic
responses. pieces written as much by the instruments themselves as
through any human engagement with them.
