The Shift Symm collection is a series of brutal, abstract audiovisual construction from Dutch-born, Copenhagen-based composer Zeno van den Broek. Raw, exposed electronic textures collide in oscillating patterns of drift. Van den Broek's sculptural sonic architecture plays on rigorous shifts of compositional symmetry - with results that are both hypnotic and evocative.
Shifting is a key principle in the three works. Visual and sonic elements - beats, lines and blocks - perpetually breach the symmetry of their arrangements, switch to new paths and start new trajectories. In chains of transformations, order gives way to controlled entropy.
Shift Symm.one focuses on linear form. Arrangements shift and distort rhythmically in a textured plane that extends indefinitely, creating waves of noise and roving focal points. As our vista expands, the plane is seen to be one among several, surfaces tangling into emerging textural complexities.
