Attractors Listening Room

Voldemārs Johansons (Riga)
16 September online event | -

An attractor is a state to which any dynamic system tends to evolve. Chaotic or strange attractors are a set of values that never reach equilibrium. In a performance that emerges from a meeting of art and science Latvian artist Voldemārs Johansons offers a rare view in the world of mathematical chaos, where generative computing is depicted with sound and choreographed movement.


Latvian artist Voldemārs Johansons works with sound and information in the forms of composition and installation. His work explores perception and reality in visible and audible domains, physicality, spatiality and the nature of experience. His research interests address organic combinations of acoustic information and spatial forms in creation of sonic environments and sculptures. Johanson’s work has been presented at diverse venues and events internationally: the Venice biennial of Architecture, Ars Electronica Center (Linz), BOZAR (Brussels), Ruhrtriennale, STEIM (Amsterdam), Sound Forest (Riga), the Latvian National Opera and elsewhere.
