SYMB.21-0 is an exploration of the symbiotic relationship between sound and image via bytebeat, a very short computer program that utilizes digital-arithmetic operations to generate an endless loop of unique output and interpreting them as raw audio output. A blink moment (360ms, an ancient time unit described in Mahāsāṃghika) of these unique output is rendered as still image, revealing their spatial-temporal relations through the lens of ancient time units and physicalized by a plotter using 0.1 blackliner on 180gsm paper.

Jon He is an experimental sound and integrated media artist, and researcher. He works within a hybridized culture of physical computing, machine learning, and digital signal processing — exploring the frontiers of sonic visual expression and experience (input and output) using emerging technologies. Jon’s works draw upon ancient sonic practices and bring ancient sound worlds to contemporary practice through re-visioning them as gestural controllers, interactive systems and mechatronic musical instruments for installations and live performances.
