Emergent Structures

Emergent Structures is a collaborative project between Max Eilbacher and Birch Cooper, formed during the global pandemic of 2020 emerging out of a long running computer music code correspondence. Emergent Structures composes generative music systems. We emphasize a cybernetic approach to composition in order to make music that reflects natural systems, inspired by the feedback systems that generate the emergent structures of our reality. We construct highly synthetic and stylized versions of these systems in our compositions that play out like polychromatic virtual ecologies. Recorded excerpts of these systems could be thought of as virtual field recordings.
