The database is accumulated with multiple combinations of data, which forms products under a sort of “limited freedom” condition. The sensors monitor eighteen hundred of number lists every round, when it is reloaded, the observer can read rearranged figures under sequence/score windows mode, pages of data are recorded correspondingly to movements of the mechanical device, and transformed into pictorial view by a programme, then displayed on the monitor.
About the “software caculation” part; a Cycling’74 Max programme is used to edit data and to process audio interface, the audio frequency is reacted according to the real time data. On the other hand, this database is also a reference to the live performers.
On the mechanical device, there are five sets of parallel tracks constructed with cable wires at a length of nine meters, around thirty small cable cars are placed on the tracks, there are sensors installed on the front and rear of them, when one car is confronting with another coming car in a close range, it will change its direction and moving reversely, the idea is to use the process of slow shuttling cars to produce a maximum-possibility random device. When watching it from distance, the movement looks like a group of musical notes jumping on the score, which is also the very initial idea of this device --- a real object score.
