k.~ is a sonic land-surveyor of infinite spaces. A three dimensional voyage in continuous space through sound. Infinite (32bit limited) spaces are enumerated randomly, as k.~ goes to new levels, crossing an ever ending abstract maze. Sound input via computer’s microphone controls the navigation of k.~ in the abstract 3d space. Different pitches and intensities trigger distinct actions. (code, computer, microphone, screen, 2010)»
