            Over the course of 24 minutes, sin(x) (24:00) creates organic soundscapes that merge into one another. The nature of the four different loudspeaker constructions have an influence on the sound of the audio signals, depending on the material and shape. All sounds were heard in the installation were created using FM synthesis, which is based on the frequency modulation of several sine tones among each other. In this way, simple tones as well as more complex noises can be generated. Many parameters are randomised, the more chaotic, the more natural the sounds. The sound design moves on the borderline from organic, calming moments to obviously synthesised, digital sounds. sin(x) (24:00) raises the question of the extent to which a system can be behind nature or whether this system only has to be random enough for us to perceive it as natural. Depending on the number of minutes in the installation, which represent hours of a day, the monitor displays the sun’s position in the form of a white surface. When one "day" is over, the next begins again in a slightly different form.
