Artist: Alku
Title: Formatissimo I + II
Software: Pure Data
An audio blueprint of the classic chicken / egg dilemma. A PD program generates a text file filled with random numbers which is then converted into audio data. The resulting audio is then analysed and dumped into the same text file which is then re-converted again... and again... and again.... Formatissimo deals with the issues of creation, iteration and endless recycling.

Artist: Steinbruchel / Brusa
Title: -00:dedaih
Software: Director
-00:dedaih is a computer generated audiovisual piece utilising pristine tones and clean sharp microtextures. It was created for the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art in Zurich and recently released as a 3" CD on synchron.

Artist: pix
Title: tabfight2k-r4nd1
Software: Pure Data
pix is a developer and part-time collaborator with Farmersmanual. His work is often based on the capture and transformation of data streams to control sound and video. tabfight2k-r4nd1 is inspired by the act of rendering kernel (operating system) data directly to the computers soundcard.

Artist: Renox
Title[s]: microsounds2004 - rand2DLsND8, rwalk, abstractB
Software: Director / Shockwave
Renox uses classic structural algorithms like Pythagoras and Fourier to control and grow audio fractal patterns. These abstract forms trigger microsound fragments, creating a delicate ambient sound space.

Artist: Tom Davis
Title[s]: Music on Hold
Software: Pure Data
Tom Davis lives in Bristol (UK) and has just finished a Masters in Creative Sound Production. He is currently working on interactive systems for performance. Music on Hold is a generative piece of telephone 'on hold' music. It utilises markov chain probability to control the playback of various simulated instruments (vibraphones,organs and synths).
