Oh The Horror Of It All (2017)

 

This piece uses data from US elections since 1952 to create different parts that vary in sound and rhythm according to the probabilities of demographical voting, as well as the relative value of the dollar and the accuracy of the voting simulations. The piece was written in MaxMSP as a response to the then upcoming US election, as a commentary on the arbitrary nature of the voting system, and in particular the polls.
