AL-EK | Sonus Stratus / PsynematiqueAL-EK is an audiovisual collaboration that crafts bio-inspired visualizations and synchronized soundscapes. The interactions between their generative visuals and electronic compositions lead to emergent expressions through imagery, shapes, and motion rooted in physics and biology. AL-EK embraces the impermanence of modern media to inspire curious dialogue through warped perceptions and sensory provocations.
Oskar is a cross-disciplinary artscientist whose research into complex systems and artificial life informs generative visual representations to invoke new insights into the familiar. Alex shapes frequency and rhythms from diverse ingredients across the electromagnetic spectrum, leveraging electronics, algorithms, instruments, and optics.
