'AlgoRhythm' is the latest single taken from the recently released album 'Scripted Orkestra' that Henrik Schwarz recorded with the Metropole Orkest. Inspired by the algorithmic method used to create this piece of music, director and animator Christian Krupa developed a visual response that brought the process full circle. "This orchestra piece was created with a small computer program working in the background that turns a one-dimensional input into a complex musical result. This small computer program is like a string on an instrument where you can get different results depending on how you 'play' it. The whole piece is based on the reaction of this program/string to the input of the player or musician," says Schwarz.
