Michael Flora – Aves

Michael Flora

Aves is a quadraphonic sound piece which simulates the flocking behavior of birds. The behaviors are generated by a flocking algorithm, which controls the bird’s frequency (pitch), amplitude (volume), and position in the four loudspeakers.

The behavior of the flock arises from the interaction of four individual “birds” adhering to a set of simple rules:

1. The number of neighbors earch “bird” consults while flocking
2. Maximum speed
3. Minimum speed
4. Strenth of “centering” instinct
5. Strength of attraction to an “attract-point”
6. Strength of neighbor avoidance instinct
7. Overall speed
8. Willingness to change speed and direction
9. Speed of acceleration
10. Preferred distance from neighbors.
