about

This project arises from the need to render a synthesis of observations and reflexions pertaining to human behaviour, the process of creation, cultural evolution and the impact of information technologies on these different spheres.

The songs presented are composed around the theme of pattern recognition (ie : models and structures underlying reality). Pattern Recognition proposes the idea of a collective intelligence which manifests itself through an interlaced arrangement made up of individual consciousness, planetary communication networks, thinking machines and the vast store of human memory.

The content of the songs, and the videos that accompany them, was developed using a multitude of sources (various media, films, the internet, etc.). By synthesizing these sources, the Pattern Recognition project aims to outline and understand the various tendencies which point towards the creation of a new vision of human intelligence, as it is seized in its movement of convergence with machine intelligence.

For the members of Headscan, this vision manifests itself in the form of a cold and dark, almost inhuman, soundscape but where the search for meaning, the sharing of knowledge and human evolution are essential.
