Robert Blatt
The Art of Production

From 21 - 25 May 2013, Robert Blatt recorded sounds of The New Fordist Organization working at Vrije Academie Den Haag. Spectral analyses were conducted on these recordings, and the resulting data was algorithmically transformed into musical scores through a computer program he has developed as a method for automating the process of composition. The sound projected in the installation consists of these field recordings and their sinusoidal resynthesis. The displayed photographs document the recording process. The work functions as a method of production which transforms and externalizes the energy of labor.
