Robert Schwarz’s album Clear Cues, released on Stefan Juster’s dissociative computer music label Etat, shows how closely culture and nature, which are often considered separately, are interconnected. For outsiders, it is simply impossible to determine which of the sounds were computer-generated and which were extracted from field recordings. In the twelve pieces on Clear Cues, they merge and lead the listener to a place where internalized frames of reference centered on the human suddenly no longer work, where, searching for orientation, you are forced to sharpen your senses to finally be able to create new associations.

In his new series of works OSWYC, which follows on from Clear Cues, Robert Schwarz examines, among other things, systems in which two dynamic phenomena, namely swarm formation and time synchronization, occur in combination, giving rise to remarkable spatiotemporal patterns.
