    absolute value of noise and Anna Friz


    absolute value of noise and Anna Friz team up to present a mixture of sounds based on both AI and human controlled synthesizer systems. The AI is trying to recreate the sounds of life in its immediate environment - imitating the sounds of insects, birds, the wind moving through the trees, rain falling, and waves on the ocean. The humans play along.

The site is open to all Art's Birthday participants to post their event information.

The website is supported by ABC:V (Art's Birthday Collective: Vancouver).
