Discover MUTEK cutting edge artists

International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Cy-Ens is the same duo—sound artist, percussionist, vocalist and composer Honey vH+ Haq Pazhutan, and designer, instrumentalist, author and educator Max Pazhutan—that took the stage at MUTEK in 2018 and 2019 as The Quark Model. As Cy-Ens, they form a cybernetic ensemble that performs using programming languages and an array of "digital gadgets." Through continuous works, such as "Aryabhatia : Trigonometric Meditations," "Tai Yi Jin Hua Zong Zhi," and "The Tower of Hanoi," Cy-Ens explore logical art that aims to inspire learning and personal development. The duo makes use of free and open-source audio programming languages that generate or compose abstract, conceptual, mathematical and musical models of sound grounded in numbers and patterns from other conceptual domains, which arise from the logical relation between the target domain's components and their interdependence.

This year, they will perform "Lullabyte Portamenti," an eight-movement piece where ethereal, lullaby-like vocals are embedded into a sonic atmosphere provided by synthesizers and Theremin, over textural live-coded and algorithmic generations that create different spaces of musical expression. Together it delivers a meditative message for the environment and humankind, expressed and mirrored through computational technology and the auditory mathematics known as music.
