«Sounds of Matter» is a cooperation between the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna and the University of Music and Performing Arts. The composition competition is realised under the guidance of University Prof. Mag. Johannes Kretz, Chairman of the Institute for Composition, Electroacoustics and Tonmeister Education. >>>

The “C12” is an Algorithmic Composition based on the simple hexagonal crystal structure for graphite geometry. As we know that carbon-12’s mass number is twelve by definition and contains six protons, six neutrons and six electrons so was a focus on the symmetry, asymmetry and equalisation encouraged me to realise this sonic project. I did not limit myself to the real structures and the functions of protons, neutrons and electrons but tried to be connected with the main issue and develop the idea creatively. >>>

For this project, I used Iannix a graphical open-source sequencer for digital art to generate my 2D patterns and interacting with Max programme to generate the sonic materials.
