Through Segments is a sound installation in an unusual interstitial space—the staircase of the Kunsthaus’ Iron  House that connects to the “Friendly Alien”. Four artists listen into the storeys using real-time computer algorithms, taking an acoustical image of the visitors’ movements, forming four individual reactions. 

It is a poetic attempt to think about the distributed, the fragmented, the parallel. During the development phase, the artists work independently, but at the same time they observe and interrogate each other, executing the gesture of a “simultaneous arrival” (Sara Ahmed). They perform a human algorithm, informed by reiteration and duplication but never being identical. The aim is not one “of all converging towards the same, but circulating, making common relaying, relaying back, being relayed” (Isabelle Stengers).

This project is part of the parcour Algorithmic Segments that presents various positions in sound art and digital art, spread across gallery and museum spaces in the inner city of Graz during summer and autumn 2020, a network connected by a digital soundwalk.

Algorithmic Segments a project by Hanns Holger Rutz and David Pirrò (Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics IEM at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz) in the framework of Graz Kulturjahr 2020.
