Program Notes
Nomadic Hues is a digital frontier. Placed on a matrix of shifting colors, Life enters the grid for survival, exploration, and progress. Players control one aspect of the whole image, leaving a trail of sound and color behind them. The piece represents how the imprints we leave behind are often only a function of our changing surroundings and bespoke interactions — and the players are not always in control. The world too expresses some luminary emotion and sonic mutability, developing over time and serving as the background for all change.
