Music as emergent order is the focus of the artistic practice of Kosmas Giannoutakis. He situates installative, performative and digital agencies as non-hierarchical, decentralized networks which exchange information through the medium of sound. His artistic output includes experimental music forms that identify and catalyze unpredictable and unrepeatable music qualities.
