Abstract or Description

This piece attempt to highlight the relationship between the structure of an image and the structure of sounds. In the extrapolation of those algorithms, there is an attempt to explore the relationship between the texture of an image and the texture of sounds. The sonic and visual processing is conducted entirely in real time from a small section of live video footage including its continuous sound track. These two elements are processed and cross-synthesised in a number of specific ways throughout the duration of the piece in a relative fashion so as to bring out unique textural aspects. In this way, the work echoes formalist approaches of the electro-acoustic tradition. This connection is amplified through the use of the piano as subject matter. However, it also draws heavily on the work of experimental and avant-garde filmmakers, particularly Stan Brakhage - specifically, the desire to draw out the internal structures and movement from the material in an attempt to echo the experience as it may appear to the unconscious mind or memory. The DVD presentation is a record of a live video performance with Piano, video camera and an Apple G4 computer.
