video of four de-congruent squares

• June 30th, 2020
These four pieces are part of a series of nine video groups. To be projeced/displayed interactive/simultaneously (installation). Here, the movement of the squares were determined by a set of 100 drawings, random placements of drawings on consecutive animation pages
—footage via frame to frame and action scanning.
 
The sound was composed using a graphic score corresponding to the color and design of the image.
 
The formula allows basic elements of each separate piece to correspond so it is possible to play them separately or in concert or with any variation.
 
For future interactive installation, options to freeze action, print a frame, play individually, or simultaneously. Ideally another sound interwoven would be a random sampling of natural sound near the showplace (contact microphones/recording/audio feed)

a grid of color squares. each color is pre-assigned note value, octave and duration. the grid is laser-scanned several times using selective sets of compatible tunings. the output generates 6 voices each scan for which the sound is also set, but can be varied. these audio tracks are treated and mixed - le voila' - btw, the grid is 3D, what you see here is one flat view, 3D images showing depths and angles coming soon -

SCARLET RIBBONS

• May 12th, 2020

This is my attempt at a more polished version of Scarlet Ribbons.

 

The music of Scarlet Ribbons was written by Evelyn Danzig Levine (January 16, 1902 – July 26, 1996) and the words by her collaborator, Jack Segal (October 19, 1918 – February 10, 2005). Evelyn Danzig and I share the same birthdate, which I did not know when first inspired to do an electronic arrangement of Scarlet Ribbons.  

My A&R company sends daily listings of new calls-and often-times, there are calls for an original arrangement of some classical or public domain music. This was a great exercise in composition, because I didn’t write it- I had to treat it like my baby, working out the “meaning” of the melody. The experience gave great insights for original compositions.

visual music based on a graphic score of 3x3 tiled squares and circles three times with 3 visually related 3-color spectrum(rgb) score base images, these image files were also used to compose the visual. experimenting at creating scores specifically for audio interpretation of visual signals or vice versa, finding that i can be very specific regarding the colors and shapes used to score the sound, and researching the various types of visual scores made and used by contemporary composers more info on this later....sit back, enjoy 3:02
