Major project:


20Cubed explores generative music to reshape musical experience by using movement
to improvise with sound in a 3D audio space.

Three geometrical shapes called Icosahedron are transformed into interactive elements to change/control a soundscape by movement. Each triangle surface sounds different. Combined they create 8,000 sounds.

More precisely: 20 to the power of 3 = 20*20*20 = 8,000 ways of sounding.

Through a triangle, we can harmonise oppositions like music, sound and noise and create something that has a structural balance. The experience evokes different feelings and pushes listening to music to the next level. Using a modal harmonic framework I created a framework that is simple in its concept, but complex in its execution.


  • From a very young age my interest was guided towards music. I am increasingly interested in exploring the boundaries between music, sound and noise but also new technologies to expand the concepts of musical expression and experience to evidence critical engagement with the complex and fast-moving context of digital and post-digital cultures.

    I am keeping my ears open!
