Created using software synthesisers she crafted herself, household objects and electronics.
Composer and software designer Floating Spectrum aka Mei-Fang Liau is releasing her debut album called A Point Between, this September via Temporary Residence.
Inspired by recurring cycles and patterns in nature, the music began life as the score to a dance performance.
Two compositions from this show then formed the foundations for what would become the album.
According to the label, Liau used “a self-made, fractal-inspired software synthesizer called Polyphylla, which simulates the way in which nature creates very complex and organic forms just by repeating slight variations of a simple form.”
Additionally, for the track ‘Eruption’ she built a system that turns visual data into sound.
