  • A visual representation of an electronic composition by Alva Noto and classical composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.

    I started out very analytically, translating the piece into numbers and waveforms using a spectrogram app. I was inspired by the deep frequencies of this composition, and  how they, and music itself, in fact physically both effects and affects our bodies. 
    I also recorded my own heartbeat while listening to it, as a direct visual translation.
    Additionally, there is  an overlay of cymatics, translating the compositions frequencies through water.
    These very analytical shapes were warped into a more felt one.
    It was my impression that the piece in ways embraced you, allowing you to create a unique room, as it as the same time left you almost no shelter at all. And that it in many ways are a bit disturbing.
    This contrast might be reflected upon the two collaborating artists; the very electronic feel of Noto, and the more classical warmth of Sakamoto.
    I therefore made the poster two-sided, allowing it to present two different im
    pacts.
