Crystallographic Composition

January 25th 2018

In 2016 I started a collaborative project with Architects and Crystallographers from Cardiff University to explore creative opportunities within crystallographic data-sets and modelling algorithms. This composition research piggy-backed on to their Leverhulme funded research which had already commenced. Outcomes included music, generative compositions, audio-visual work and an installation in Berlin. Below you’ll find some of the resulting music and some images. Here’s an overview of my involvement, and for more in depth documentation go here. A paper explaining the wider project can be found here.


My part of the research was kindly supported by Arts Council England and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Additional thanks go to the kind welcome we got at Acud Macht Neu in Berlin.
