entropy comes from a greek word meaning transformation. it defines a system, or thing, that functions at a level of disorganization or lack of information. the word is at the base of ‘entropia’ an immersive music installation by sound artist fraction, in collaboration with louis philippe st-arnault, nature graphique, and creation ex nihilo.

co-produced by the society for art and technology, the installation took over the satosphère — a venue in montreal — during IX symposium. the piece was built on site, and includes over 6000 unique, controllable pixels that change on cue. voice and sound are provided through the space’s 157 speakers, featuring 32 looped voices.

fraction immerses visitors in an intense audio-visual experience using sound spatialization, direct light, and projections. ‘entropia’ is based on inharmonic layers and abstracted textures, with composition focusing on harsh notes that breakthrough in climactic bursts. light movements in the space accompany noises in a complex choreography. ‘entropia’ benefitted from the society for art and technology residency program throughout the project in its entirety
