The fear that machines will replace human work is nothing new. It can

the current pandemic is also shaking the traditional concept of human labour.
This work is the result of a personal
investigation into self-generative, real-time audio-visual composition. It is a self-sufficient system that infinitely plays
ever-changing synchronous sounds and visuals without the need of human interaction. So I don’t need to be here to perform
as my machines are doing everything for me – but every now and then I might pass by for a nap.
