From Voice to Pulse is an audiovisual work revolving around the relation and tension between the human and the digital. The piece takes form in an algorithmic composition for percussion, performed by custom robotics, and for voice, performed by a human. The visuals are inspired by the weaving loom and self playing musical instruments such as the Componium, bridging the physical and the digital. The text performed by Gagi Petrovic is written by the GPT-2 open-source artificial intelligence. This AI was trained on 'Species of Spaces' by Georges Perec and various Wikipedia pages on spatial perception, which resulted in new uncanny perspectives on the relation between people and the (digital) spaces they occupy.
