Jazz Iterations

Iteration is the act of repeating a process, to generate a (possibly unbounded) sequence of outcomes.

A computer algorithm performs random operations on selected jazz recordings from The Center for Danish Jazz History, accompanied by the artist improvising on drums in response to the computers’ output.

The Center for Danish Jazz History in Aalborg is northern Europe’s largest archive of jazz records, tapes, scores and magazines. In this project Morten used music from this archive as artistic material.
