lament

2008
9.59 min loop
quadraphonic sound and video installation

 

A site of mysterious purpose or origin, pulsating light and shifting sound patterns merge, to form the interconnected audio visual environment ‘lament’.

Strongly influenced by ideas of structural minimalism, this time-based installation is determined, not by a specific beginning or end, but rather by the notion of a constant prolonged emotion, and the willingness of the spectator to immerse, for any given length of time.

Composed in its physicality and acoustics around a central pulse, the spatial positions of the rhythms and its random rhythm changes, stand in direct mathematical relation to the 16 pillars and their individual heights. Haunting the site with its erratic floating movements are the melodic elements, employing harmonic relations specifically created to suite the installation, its movements and tonality, determined by chance operating within carefully constructed compositional systems.
