The main interest of this work at present is cross-modality and the correspondence or substitution of sound with light and the reverse. The works and experiments found here use algorithmic processes to allow substitution from one phenomena to another. Initially the interest grew out of using colour to represent notes within pitch training.
From this, the notion of using code to create a correspondence between the two phenomena, led to some of the results found here, under ‘light.’ In regard to this aspect of the work, I’m developing applications that could be of use to musicians.
Another strand that has emerged from the work and using this technology, is an approach to composition, both sound and image, that would be considered generative. Two of the works found under ‘sound,’ ‘ink drawings’ and ‘purple dots,’ use the image itself as data to create and literally shape composition.
The progression of this aspect of the work has led me to utilise both light and sound from urban ecologies, as data, to shape and determine both pictorial and sonic composition.
