Solaris (1979)
remixed in 2007 from the vinyl recording Music from a Small Planet

(analog sequencing device, electronic sounds)

The original analog sequences were derived from a method of composition modeled after the biological process of self-regeneration (multiplication by division). A single musical pattern, made-up of a finite number of sounds, was generated electronically and then copied repeatedly onto a single audio track.

The number of recorded channels increases at an exponential rate (2, 4, 8, 16…) as the copying process evolves, while the number of generations in the final recording is determined by the overall ‘resonant’ qualities obtained from the growth-rate of each succeeding generation.

Electronic sounds were later mixed with the analog sequences.
