Marc Sloan's Transient Electro Acoustic Events - The Strange Attractors Studio and Live Performance Part I-IV
I have always been impressed by storms, the elements outdoors, sounds, instruments which in turn all became a music for me. These environmentals put a stamp on my engram spinal attachments and electro-biological 'Trees Of Nerve Endings'. I have always been driven to press these many musical art genres flowers. The sounds in turn reciprocated and i am nailed to the sky.
"Transient Electro Acoustic Events - The Strange Attractors" are the musical wildflowers I collected using the machines of space and time; like my botanical work days (1983-2000) forever layered between the pages of time mica, years and baklava dreams. I use electronics, magnetic digital analog gadgets, circuit bending, field recordings and musical instruments to create the electro plasma the same way the visual artist uses color, clay, wood...
I call this genre "World Electronica". These recordings go way beyond mere knob twisting. The foundation, references and end sounds always hologram our collective formative.
Here are a few of the 70's/80's Lorenz models from which I borrow to explain further:
"Small differences in initial conditions...yield widely diverging outcomes..."
"...rendering long-term prediction impossible in general...though these systems are deterministic..."
"...that future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions...with no random elements involved (that's still debatable)...simply chaos...behavior observed in many natural systems, such as weather..."
My first exposure to the term 'Transient Electro Events' was an article on the study of electrical weather storms. This was indeed a welcome extension to my 'Trees Of Nerve Endings' concept which is a physical, electrical, biological and visual relationship of trees, nerves, epidermis, leaf patterns, lighting into our atmosphere and stratosphere, fractals/images, snow flakes…etc. I hope you get the picture.
