AnyBody 5, 10 & 40 are three pieces written specifically for Anybody Zine. The pieces revolve around a set of virtual falling bodies with weights affected by gravity. Their interactions with the environment, falling and rebounding, define the music that’s made in the most serendipitous way. Moments of chance lead to themes and rhythms forming and dissolving before your eyes. It’s music that’s beyond me, that I wouldn’t be able to write or perform in any other way than to write the code, and press start.
