Zero Player Game is a simulation where information given it’s own agency becomes an evolving synthetic stream of consciousness. The initial input of the game sets guidelines for moving into future states that flow between variations of density and structure. Memory accumulates and dissipates until no moves or a stream of infinitely repeating moves remain.
Jeff Carey’s fourth CD release is is electro-instrumental music performed with custom software controlled by a joystick and gamer keypad. Zero Player Game is an intensely artificial sound world where beats and bass lines are replaced with an elastic structure of synthetic texture, feedback and bit crushed noise blasts.
