|Friction Sticky Rough (21:00)|
The sound-making procedures
of nonstandard synthesis -- iterative and nonlinear in nature -- were
the point of departure for the image-making techniques used in Friction
Sticky Rough, a sound and image installation for multiple video projection
and loudspeakers. The sound component of the piece is based on iterative
functional sound synthesis, which involves developing musical structures
by manipulating interactions at the sound-particle level. In developing
the image component, I set out to parallel this micro-compositional approach
and to create a visual analog of the sound. The video consists of simulations
of particle paths that provide a highly complex continuous medium for
the transformation of nonlinear flow fields by means of particle-to-object

The premiere of What Sound Does a Color Make? features contemporary and historical works by an internationally diverse group of artists who manipulate sound with image and image with sound. The show includes artists who likewise use technology to inspire a renewed consciousness of highly un-technological experiences -- physicality, human cognition, and perception. Featuring work by Scott Arford, Jim Campbell, D-Fuse with Scanner, Thom Kubli, Granular Synthesis, Gary Hill, Fred Szymanski, Atau Tanaka, Stephen Vitiello, Nam June Paik, Steina and Woody Vasulka.
