Jost Muxfeldt uses Audio Kinematics to create virtual audio sculptures, utilizing the spatial relations and proportions of a mechanical structure to determine various parameters of a sound composition.
The motion in the current realization is based on the principle of a mobile, a binary tree structure combined with circular motions. Since the motions of the individual nodes are always circular, they can over time be described with a series of sine waves added to each other. The motion of one node is thus described by the amplitude modulation of the sine wave of the parent node. Thus the motion is closely related to one of the most basic principles of audio synthesis.
