KVERV (swirl, vortex) is a collection of continuous video streams and compositions made by artist and composer Amund Ulvestad as part of his work as artist in residence at Freie Universität Berlin's Excellence Cluster 2020 Temporal Communities.
The works are continuously evolving, algorithmically controlled video streams. Below you will find static recordings of some of the streams. For more information about the artist, please visit www.amundulvestad.no

NB This work has been censored by Youtube for the second time. I am working hard to get it back up again. In the meantime, here is a short recorded outtake of the original work, which is a continuously running, slowly changing video stream.
The simple ticks and tocks of a mechanical clock are the basic building blocks of this composition. The clock's sound is captured by a contact microphone. It is then dramatically transformed through various forms of sampling, processing and spectral synthesis. All of the sounds in this piece are constructed in real time from one or more ticks from the clock. The work is intended as a deep de- and reconstruction of the clock's mechanically driven acoustic output, and of its metric structuring of time.
