Oceanus is an installation allowing interactive narration based on a variational scenario and an authoring software tool created by the artist. The idea of the work, on the levels of structure and story, refers to the concept of navigating the sea. Notions such as marking out courses and sea sailing are transposed into the media environment and provide the metaphors that drive the installation. They enable travel across the universe of Oceanus and provide a natural co-existence between the linear narration, associated with sequential events, and interactive narration, related to the modifiable structures, altered by choices and generative processes.
Mapping Chopin (interactive visual-sound installation, 2010) creates an immersive interactive environment that allows viewers/listeners to experience the music in an intuitive and unstructured way. Specially designed software combined with a motion-detection system generates variations on digitalized scores of Chopin’s pieces based on the behavior of the audience/participants.
Ping Melody is a music-net-performance. Temporary and unique state of all actions of Internet users has an influence on form of music composition. Musician (instrumentalist or singer) is playing on acoustic instrument/singing and sounds coming from instrument/voice are shared in packets of data information (granulated), then transmitted to selected Internet locations (as "ping" unix command). The order of packet's return, packet's delays, transmission errors alerts are incorporated, and the information coming from these actions is controlling in the real time the transformation of played sound.
Pawel Janicki: independent media artist and producer working with generative music, microsound and algorithmic composition, interactive systems for performances and installations, and his own constantly developed hard- and software.
