I am using the dazzle ships as a source for sounds, e.g. with samples of recorded metal parts, marine propellers that I modify, alienate, distort, chop etc… Synthetic sounds and audio effects emphasize rhythmic or random movement. Historic images of dazzle ships provide distinct black and white patterns that are analysed and transformed into sound effects and even instruments, generating sequences of notes. So I can turn the graphical patterns into generated sounds, tonal sequences or even music scores to be interpreted by other instruments on a timeline.
