– Dedicated to Alan Turing and all genius minds who saved lives

– Alan Turing had a brilliant mind who changed history. This guy was not like everyone else, because he lived off mathematics. His great passion led him to great discoveries and to combine calculations with the model of the mind. His studies led him to become the father of computer science and his test became the basis for the creation of artificial intelligence. In Latin Codex meant a waxed writing table while today it means a set of symbols or signs, that have the same origin and a function already determined. To use a code, it’s necessary a series of rules that establish a combination that allow the creation of a coherent message. When a message is transmitted it must be decrypted by implementing a common code and in this way both parties will be able to fully communicate. The sender and receiver know and have to use the same code. In this work the idea was to sample sounds that can evoke and suggest the context within which Turing operated: noise of an analogic machine, sounds of an old typewriter and sounds of an old telephone. This piece has been organized in three main sections: A-B-A‘ with two rythmical bridges between B and A’. During the sound manipulation I created soundscapes that belong to mechanical analogic noises and, referring to the context of the war in which Turing operated, of planes and pilots‘ voices. The central rhythmic part intends to re-propose the birth of the computer. The digital image by Roberto Rosso and manipulated by Riccardo Gagliarducci has a codex in it (Codex if|do|next-derived from the book of Turing and from computational thinking)and inside the composition we inserted an encrypted code.
