The exhibited audio-music piece titled ‘compulsive music waves’ is my reflection on Dr David Belin’s work on addictions.
Sometimes I feel addicted to drinking a certain type of tea and making a certain type of music: PuErh tea and electronic music.
The video below records a morning tea ceremony with a mobile phone attached to my forehead. After the video recording, the music was composed with the flextime sequencer developed for BCMI-1.
More info on Pint of Science, Cambridge here. Screen-recording of the composition process can be seen below.
