Sound and Vision

I went to see “Gone with the Wind” at Raven Row gallery, (http://www.ravenrow.org/current/) works by Max Eastley, Takehisa Kosugi, Walter Marchetti and Resonance104.4fm. (see images on left)

Max Eastley’s early works included a piece called Airophone, strangely enough. I really enjoyed  his drawings and those of Walter Marchetti and Takehisa Kosugi, which played with the idea of the musical score,

duration and linearity.

They reminded me a lot of architectural drawings such as those by Daniel Libeskind and Iannis Xenakis. I want to investigate this connection between the space of sound and the sound of

space further.

I also found out about Sound-on-film,  processes where the sound accompanying the picture is physically recorded onto photographic film, usually, but not always, the same strip of film carrying the picture.

This is curiously similar to the unintended results of the Aurophone machine, where the sound and image are combined onto the same frame, as a visual reading.
