— Dedicated to Alan Turing and all genius minds who saved lives —
Alan Turing had a brilliant mind who changed history. This guy was not like everyone else, because he lived off mathematics.This piece has been organized in three main sections: A-B-A’ with two rythmical bridges between B and A’. During the sound manipulation I created soundscapes that belong to mechanical analogic noises and, referring to the context of the war in which Turing operated, of planes and pilots’ voices. The central rhythmic part intends to re-propose the birth of the computer. This piece is in Googlemaps in Bletchley Park, well known as X Station,where Turing was working. 

The creative idea for this piece comes from the word “Plasma” that is often called the “Fourth State of Matter”. Plasma is a distinct state of matter containing a significant number of electrically charged particles, a sufficient number to affect its electrical properties and behavior. Plasma also refers to the liquid component of blood that holds the blood cells in suspension. Energy, thunder and blood inspired my composition process.
