Anticipation is a pre-sorting of situations. A way to deal with the (un)suspected.
Antesituation is a composition for Modular Synthesizer, using traditional ways of pattern generation via rather modern step sequencers. These patterns are then further shuffled and processed. The discrete, yet fluctuating and self-resembling structures that emerge from these processes are the foundation for a more fluid sound design, merging discrete and continous elements into a stream of sound - a Sonic Flux.

At the premiere of Antesituation at the waves & wires Festival, Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg, I was invited to give a talk on the concept of Sonic Flux, which is deeply connected to my approach of Sound Creation and Perception.
