There are five parts to this sound and video work. The first focuses on a montage of electronic wave forms from an analogue oscilloscope monitor. The second is a literal use of water waves taken from the Elbe and slowly abstracted over time. Thirdly, the water transforms to air and we see the slow moving patterns of clouds. From the large to the small we zoom in using macro photography to capture movement patterns in aquatic environments. Subtle currents, types of debris and varied lighting and feedback techniques are all qualities that define the visual field. The fifth and final part is a reworking of the original hand painted films of Rick Reed a colleague of mine based in Austin, Texas. Attention is devoted to each subject as the intricacies are given enough time to be visually absorbed.
A live mix formed from a diverse archive of recordings of the past year is used for the soundtrack. This consists of acoustic recordings of piano and pure tone â€˜chimesâ€™ and computer synthesis which is being used as material for new compositions.
