According to the American researcher JC Sprott, as the dimension of a system increases, the likelihood that it is chaotic also increases. For high-dimensional systems, chaos is the norm rather than the exception.
We will investigate organising principles of chaotic circuits as isolated nodes and as part of larger systems. Workshop participants will build a simple circuit exhibiting non-autonomous (driven) chaos, and the circuits will be interconnected to produce a chaotic network. We will use both visual and audio displays to represent the information within an elaboration of open hardware.
is a sound artist and electronic musician who lives and performs in the Boston area, where she grew up. The main focus of her work to date has been the design and construction modular synthesisers which use analog electronic circuits to create a diversity of sounds. She uses her synthesisers in installations at galleries and also in her high-energy, live musical performances under the name "Can't". She has an MFA in electronic music from Bard College, Avondale-on-Hudson, New York and has received grants from the Penny McCall Foundation and the LEF Foundation. Rylan is also currently an intern at the Buchla electronic music instrument workshop in California.
