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.
In Shift Symm.two, a grid structure merges from the artist’s formal language. Simple forms give way to the interplay of multiple moving layers, overlaps and collisions generating dense textures.
