The newest work by the Slovenian intermedia artist Luka Prinčič, the continued piece ark/d, amorphic is somewhat minimal, but a complex composition and an example of computer music in the new decade. With SuperCollider and computer programming Prinčič has managed to use various sound-generating algorithms to form a lengthy non-linear sound story. Searching for the amorphousness in the absence of form, he programmed the sound generators and transformations using the programming language like a loom, sewing the code into repetitive pulsations and ambiental scenery that eavesdrops on the darker aspects of contemporary human condition.
Deliberately in small initials, the title ark/d, amorphic alludes to a minority philosophy that seeks a world in the shadows of the spectacle, is against the domination of the majority and the megalomania of post-objectification.
