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.
The third work in the series, Shift Symm.three, sees stark lines contrast with circular forms, a simultaneous counterpoint of both visuals and sound. The contact of elliptical and linear echoes the relationship between discrete digital and continuous analogue representation.
