The aim of this blog is to document research and creative output, both of which investigate complexity as an aesthetic property of music and visual art. The research focuses on the perception and measurement of complexity in audio and visual media, whilst the creative practice leads and supports the research through the production of generative music and visual art.
My name is Guy Birkin. I’ve studied art, worked in science, now doing research, and always making music. My music has been released via Fluf, Entr’acte, New York Haunted, SUPERPANG, Hard Return and Tokinogake. I’ve written reviews for The Wire and an album blurb for Stellage. I like analytical/technical challenges, and have supported projects for various musicians and artists, so if you’ve got a problem like that feel free to get in touch.
