Sound Direction & Video Installation

On the 10th of March 2010 the last part of the Perception Trilogy called “Six Easy Pieces” will be shown at VIDEOFRAMES 2010 – a festival for Video Art & Digital Culture in Clermont/France.

I collaborated with Reynold Reynolds for this three-channel video installation. I was responsible for the whole sound and music on this project.

Being the last part of the Perception Trilogy ; a three-part cycle exploring the imperceptible conditions that frame life. Six easy pieces connects art and science, focusing on space and time and romantically refers to an age when artists and scientists had similar concerns and were often one and the same person.
