BeadTheory is the 4th in the playpiece series, with music composed by Tom Rennie. Part 1 represents approximately the first third of the whole work.
BeadTheory is constructed from a series of distinct elements: kernels, beads and strings. The structure comprises a series of loops or ‘beads’ which are created using artwork with a common design element which lies in the ‘kernels’ - the core of the beads. The beads are connected by strings, where artwork is derived from libraries using principles of randomisation.
