‘Code’ by Berlin and L.A.-based artist Byrke Lou is the third LP curated and released by Research and Waves and ZCKR Records. For the record the artist presents a sonic translation of her sculptural work ‘.ctu_isbtm’. Encountered through ‘.fa’, a virtual sound synthesis system designed by the artist, as well as live-coding methods, the 3-dimensional objects are programmatically encoded within a language of pitches and rhythms that uses a set of cultural samples as a base for translation.
For the release of ‘Code’, Byrke Lou and Research and Waves developed an evening-long event at modular+ that blends exhibition, performance and music formats. Physical exhibits will be shown along a live set by the artist, dance elements and DJ-sets.
