Notes on this piece
 
Convolutional Emergence (2013)
"Every resultant is either a sum or a difference of the co-operant forces; their sum, when their directions are the same. The emergent is unlike its components insofar as these are incommensurable, and it cannot be reduced to their sum or their difference." G. H. Lewes. "... the totality is not, as it were, a mere heap, but the whole is greater than the sum of the parts...." Aristotle, Metaphysics. Convolution is a mathematical operation on two functions, producing a third function. In music convolution is the imposition of a spectral or rhythmic structure on a sound. Often this envelope or structure is taken from another sound. I use this method as a basis to create a third, or invisible, layer of sound through the piece. The sum of such byproducts eventually function as an emergent and create a blend as a whole. Alongside with inner layers of music functionality, such as rise and fall in tension or emotions. In a simple word, the convulution in this piece could work as a mean of substitute for counter-point. Emergence is the way complex systems and patterns arise out of a multiplicity of relatively simple interactions. An emergent property can appear when a number of simple entities operate in an environment, forming more complex behaviors as a collective. The complex behaviour or properties are not a property of any single such entity. The shape and behaviour of a flock of birds or school of fish are good examples.
