Zufall oder Notwendigkeit
DE 1989

“Chance or necessity” is one in a series of works, which deal with chaos, chance and determination. The question here is whether it is possible for the viewer to find out if the evoked sound structures are accidental or determined. Indeed the object reaction has a character of chance although the electronic structure is strictly determined (there is no random generator). The title “chance or necessity” was inspired by “chance or necessity”, a work written by Jaques Monod, molecular biologist and winner of the Nobel prize.
