Nexe is a musical composition, a performance that evolves in real-time, combining dancers, singers, live electronics, multichannel audio, and interactive elements, to create an immersive experience. It was performed in August 2023 at Musiikkitalo's Black Box, as my final concert for the Master in Music Technology at the Sibelius Academy, Uniarts Helsinki.

The project takes inspiration from the ways genetics and social relationships shape human behavior and development. It's an exploration of how we become who we are, drawing inspiration from theories in genetics, sociology, and human behavior. The score and elements in the piece are at times generative and adaptive to the input of dancers and the singers themselves. 

The performance patch was made using Cycling '74 Max software, using DRAWSOCKETplatform to send the generative score to the singers.
