‘Detik 2.0’ is inspired by the interconnectedness of life where elements co-exist,  combine or merge, or attract and repel each other .These forces and elements work in mysterious sequences or randomness that culminates in a balance – UNITY.

 To capture this uniqueness and represent it in sounds, generative frequency modulation synthesis is used. This is a process where one waveform oscillates another waveform, creating a symphony of sounds.
