Sonic-Fragment-Image

Sonic Fragment is an ambitious group show that brings together contemporary sound artists congregating in London, England. Despite tough living conditions, for artists especially, the capital still attracts and fosters a rich sound art scene. Their sonic concerns are varied as they are broad, travelling across spaces: galleries, nightclubs, squat parties, academic institutions and site specific work. Sonic Fragment aims to provide a glimpse of the cross disciplinary activities and shifting terrain of sound art emanating from the capital. London’s vibrant scene is installed into and pouring out of the Auricle.

Untitled(Translation1)-still3The video is called Untitled (Translation 1) which features abstract visual imagery over a repetitive, droning, polyrhythmical sound track. The audio for the piece audio uses the Music By The Metre method.  The visual output of using transposed methods I call Video Drone. Multiple layers of audio and video create a hypnotic, spiralling montage, made to evoke a dystopian dream sequence or meditative state.
