Circular Scores (2017-2018)
A sound visualisation project which explores links between repetitive, musical motifs and organic, natural patterns. Within this imagery musical score is deconstructed and re-invented in order to visualise complex sounds within time and space. These music maps express sound layering, texture, tone, repetition and rhythm. They map music as circular rather than linear graphic score, with pitch as radius and time as circumference.
Circular Score visualises Fratres by Arvo Pärt – a piece exploring the musical convention of variations on a theme. Within this set of works repeated motifs generate new diagrams, each image echoing the previous one. The disks both within and outside the etched score depict volume dynamics.
