Works | Cy-Ens

The Cybernetic Ensemble

Cy-Ens is a computer music project from MP|vH+ CSAP with the ambition of expanding the potentials of understanding the Aesthetics of computational sound and appreciation of logic, math and art.
With continous works like "Aryabhatia : Trigonometric Meditations", "Tai Yi Jin Hua Zong Zhi" and "The Tower of Hanoi", Cy-Ens explores logical art, to inspire learning and personal development, and to create art.
Cy-Ens uses free and open-source audio programming languages. Regarding the musical direction, Cy-Ens usually performs works based on an analogy. Music is viewed as a conceptual metaphor with various mathematical material as source domain and systematic sonic structure composition as the target domain. This is the process of generating or composing abstract, conceptual, mathematical and musical models of sound based on numbers and patterns of other conceptual domain. Patterns of musical form, musical structure and design arise from the logical relation of the target domain's components and their interdependence.

Cy-Ens performs music mainly using free and open source audio programming languages. (Sometimes beside the audio programming languages, digital gadgets such as Nintendo DS, iPad, etc., various types of MIDI controller such as sliders, knobs, percussion pads, and various software synthesizers, samplers and digital audio workstations may appear in the band's works.)



TAI YI JIN HUA ZONG ZHI - 2014 | Compositions

Live Coding Live Coding / Improvisation in SuperCollider, Pure Data And Korg Gadget based on the Chinese scales. When a person looks at or listens to something, their eyes and ears pursue things, they get stirred up, only to stop when things are gone. This activity and rest are all subjects, but the heavenly ruler becomes their slave. This is living with demons. But now if you make yourself live with a human being in all activity and rest, this human being is the heavenly ruler, who is a real human being. If when he moves, one moves with him, then the movement is the Heavenly root. When he rests, one rests with him; this is the rest of the moon cavern. Even when he alternates movement and rest for no clear reason just go along with him. When he rises and falls, rise and fall with him. That is what is called going to and fro between the root of Heaven and the moon cavern without occupying oneself with other things. (Tai Yi Jin Hua Zong Zhi / Part 8. A Secret Spell for Freedom / Section 9)
