Anémochories

a series of wind generated compositions

Anemochories are a series of generative and/or interactive compositions controlled by the wind. Algorithmically conceived, the compositions unfold and adapt to different situations, places, devices, temporalities and formats of diffusion such as installation, acousmatic concert, or performance.

Wind is a meteorological phenomenon that plays several important roles in ecosystems. The one that interests me in particular is the phenomenon of anemochemistry, which is the dispersion of diasporas. It is the main mode of dispersion of about 90% of plant species. The wind disperses life.
The generative work Anemochories uses data on the strength of the wind to subtly vary sounds, structures and space.
