Conical 03 – Marius Watz
Cronicaelectronica recently released ‘Digital Sound Drawings’ by Moren Riis, 6 pieces that use direct processing of drawings into sound. The release, which is free to download, is also complimented with a limited edition set of prints from Marius Watz, where traced segments of conical shapes cause vibrantly coloured interference patterns.
Network diagrams, occlusions and eclipses of celestial bodies, and dynamic charts reminiscent of Paul Klee’s Pedological sketches all abound in Cornelius Cardew’s experimental musical scores. The esoteric 193 page Treatise is intended to be studied and discussed by its performers in advance of its rendition, and interpreted in ways they see fit according to their training and musical dispositions.
Pablo Valbuena explores the sculptural time-space by augmenting his physical structures with light projections which change the nature of the volumetric over time. The resulting luminous geometries, most commonly cubes and three dimensional rectangles are further enhanced by the presence of sound.
Chris Sugrue and Damian Stewarts ‘A Cable Plays’ is described as an ‘audio-visual performance where two performers appear to be engaged in a strange game or ritual…. taking turns pinning bits of yarn across an arcane game board’. In this game, emergent spatial patterns are triggered by the opening of Voronoi-like cells defined by the inter-crossing and unlocking of the yarns.
