about

Gary Myles (Of Habit, Spoils & Relics) and Adam Parkinson (Dane Law, Quantum Natives) combine microphone, objects and computer in their first collaboration, Empty Gesture. Unsettling ambience is struck through with Of Habit’s monotone, almost demented spoken voice. Dane Law’s jittering software recycles and accumulates, offering patterned beats and digitally crusted soundtrack. It’s both welcome and unwell. Data everywhere and yet nowhere, just passing through us, warming.

Merge sort takes advantage of the ease of merging already sorted lists into a new sorted list. It starts by comparing every two elements (i.e., 1 with 2, then 3 with 4...) and swapping them if the first should come after the second. It then merges each of the resulting lists of two into lists of four, then merges those lists of four, and so on; until at last two lists are merged into the final sorted list.

Of the algorithms described here, this is the first that scales well to very large lists, because its worst-case running time is O(n log n). It is also easily applied to lists, not only arrays, as it only requires sequential access, not random access. However, it has additional O(n) space complexity, and involves a large number of copies in simple implementations.
