Created by Émile Sacré, Kulbuto is an installation and an instrument, exploring possibilities of non-uniform compositions by both visualising what is being created and using the visual content as the driving force behind the rhythmic cycles.
The formal outcome of Kulbuto is based on principles of changing rates, determined by graphic collisions at speeds. We are facing environment created by tensions, where some variations of unstable rhythmic cycles are synchronized and de-synchronized in time. The composition appears “wobbly” which varies across different types of sequencing. In a way, we can say that this device is the opposite of the principle of arpeggiator, controller and tool rack of from the rhythmic point of view.
Émile notes that understanding the instrument is the result of what sound is generated, the relationship between front visual feedback and sound output.
