Double Pendulum is an audiovisual work for solo performer. It is an experiment in complexity from simplicity. Internally, it consists of a three-act narrative that is realized by the performer through guided improvisations. A visualized particle system built in Unity reflects the musical actions of the performer, and in turn informs the performer of how to react. The shy and infantile particle system grows awkwardly, then experiences an apotheosis in a cloud of visual swarms and sonic drones.
