Visual artist Candas Sisman (Turkey) and Lithuanian composer Egidija Medekšaitė present their collaboration work – audiovisual piece EFF-LUX. According to the author’s this work is their attitude to the daily process, which are made by humans sometimes as machines or with special attitude (hand craft). During the piece, the visual information transforms from mechanical forms to linear movements. The music is played by computer recorded 15 differently tuned Steinway pianos. For composer it is like characters of the different weavers, which are knitting their own melodies, using the same pitches, but structures and lines of melodies all the time are in rotation. Melodies as the 15 pianos gather to one structure and sometimes their splits to 15 different lines. The tempo of the music during the piece becomes three times slowly. Music is based on minimalist composition technique and repeating loops.
Involved with spur of the moment event, Sisman incorporates abstract narrative language, his works contain a naivety and simplicity in contradiction with the commotion and ideology of life in general. These ‘events’ that emerge are tossed into the open by passing them through an emotional and perceptual filter of data and situations in the external world without preponderance. His works are a momentary / flow related audiovisual process
People start recognizing they are nothing when depth of their awareness enhances.’’ Its the nothingness within the most intricate details that allow for his complex simplicity.
