Autonomous Improvisation v.1
, is a video anthology of some of Sydney’s most infamous solo musicians and performers. The work analyses a range of performance approaches from burlesque to sound art by recording artists in the same studio configuration. The performances happening only for the camera are then reconfigured in the gallery. A prepared pianola is linked to a network of computers and is programmed to orchestrate the video sequences, creating an ever-changing composition. This is presented via three-channels of audio–visual projection. Through non-determinist re-composition, the work questions if it is possible for improvisation to be programmed, or if this is simply a paradoxical endeavor. Furthermore Autonomous improvisation v1 asks us to consider why autonomous systems are uncanny and what is significant about the emergent patterns that arise within these systems.
