The Predictability of Unpredictability is a work for solo analog synthesizer and accompanying video projections. The title is a direct reference to Jerome Cooper’s seminal solo percussion recording from 1979. Here though, the analog synthesizer provides the sound palate for this extended improvisational composition. The video component , shot mainly during the Covid lockdown provides a visual counterpoint to the sonic landscape that is being produced in real time.
