Lsystem3 is a generative sound composition installed at MUPAC for the 2019 Shenzhen Biennale. The composition, inspired by algorithms called L-systems observed in nature, is a metaphor for the anomalous growth of Shenzhen.

The sounds used to activate the generative algorithms are samples of traditional Chinese musical instruments that slowly grow on themselves as they develop according to an L-system. The sound installation interacts with Loris Cecchini's "Water Bones" installation within a black cube.

Curated by Manuela Lietti.
