Pattern Language at IFFR

Pattern Language, for which I composed two movements of music for synthesizers as well as leading sound design, premiered at International Film Festival Rotterdam this year. 

'Pattern language' is a term coined by architect Christopher Alexander to describe the existence of certain human ambitions through an index of structural patterns. In this film, highly organised and richly layered patterns move in accordance with audio frequencies and rhythms, towards the construction of an endlessly mutating labyrinth.

Pattern Language

PATTERN LANGUAGE | by Peter Burr | September 2016
3-Legged Dog Production / Creative Capital Award Sundance Story Lab
With Mark Fingerhut, Brenna Murphy, and Porpentine
Music and Sound Design by John Also Bennett


“Pattern Language” is a term coined by architect Christopher Alexander describing the aliveness of certain human ambitions through an index of structural patterns. Some advocates of this design approach claim that ordinary people can use it to successfully solve very large, complex design problems. In this installation, Peter Burr employs the vocabulary of Alexander’s system towards the construction of an endlessly mutating death labyrinth, projecting this world inside an immersive multi-channel video environment.
