The Code series are audio-visual works on the theme of communication between humans and computers. The performer commands the computer through its terminal, and the computer produces the sound accordingly. The computer consists of various modules with a relatively simple Artificial Neural Network. The performer trains these modules in real time and improvises. Through continued communication between the two, the music continues to change and the audience can see the process through the screen.
