SYMMETRY OF GRAVEL WAVE: False awakenings is a blend of abstract rhythmical patterns, evolving ambient landscapes and detailed sound design. Audible generative structures provide the canvas for a visual interpretation of time - motion and memory. As a measure of disorder an immersive audiovisual world is created, a temporal construct of bass, light and colour.

OWNS NOTHING TO THE LIGHT OF DAY: is part of the Go Back to Hiding in the Shadows collection of generative audiovisual works by Pandelis Diamantides. Derived from a performance of the same name, Go Back to Hiding in the Shadows is a digital granary of processed instrumental and electronic sounds, field recordings, rock formations, plants, animals and swarms unfolds a narrative of becoming.

The prime source material of the work consists of deconstructed human voices, physical instruments and field recordings dissolved in an imagery of photographs, videos and processed visual material collected around the Troodos mountain range on the island of Cyprus.

Diamantides worked with custom software to algorithmically process the source material, generatively creating configurations of visuals and sound; a collaboration between human and algorithm, the work constitutes an audiovisual 'narrative of becoming' and questions the relationship between the digital and the organic.

The collection also seeks to explore place and identity as mutually defining forces whose interactions cannot be simplified or easily represented. "While creating the narrative of the performance I wanted to discover for myself what it is that connects me with the region (Cyprus, Eastern Mediterranean) where I grew up and developed the foundation of my personality and view of the world. I realised that what we people accept as place of origin, is what the establishment imposes on us which is usually the fabricated idea of nation and country. I visited the area again and again trying to understand what it means to me; nothing more than an introvert way of living, the experience of my reality, not a poor representation of it.
