PARSEC is a kinetic audio visual machine consisting of 16 identical arms performing a generative composition based on swarm synthesis. Each arm holds two LEDs and a loudspeaker which will create abstract audio visual patterns while being rotated. The core of the installation consists of a swarm synthesizer, 16 identical analogue and modular synthesizers. The synths are programmed to perform swarm like behavior which can also be recognized in the movement and light patterns.

PARSEC was made possible with the generous support of:
Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie
Stichting Stokroos
Het Materiaalfonds voor Beeldende Kunst en Vormgeving

Concept and realisation: Joris strijbos and Daan Johan
