Video and Electroacoustic Music
Systasis represents a philosophical inquiry. Our understanding of reality is bound to the interface through which we create the meaning of that reality. What is the cost to our understanding due to that interface? What is that reality devoid of our ability to structurate meaning? These are questions that inspired the conceptual framework of this piece. Through fluidity and structure this work attempts to approach these questions. Systasis was awarded Finalist in the 1st annual international Fresh Minds Festival Competition 2012, at Texas A&M.
Live Performance and Electroacoustic Music
To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower.
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
Inspired by William Blake’s poem Augeries of Innocence, the piece is an exploration of timbre and texture. Augeries captures the qualitative aspects of Blake’s prose by presenting the listener with an equally aperspectival aesthetic experience. Small-scale structure reflected on the large-scale form - the infusion of vastness and expansiveness into the fragile and minute, metonymic relationships between the tape and live performance, stasis, dilation of time, and structural multiplicity are incorporated to create an aesthetic experience that is designed to explore the notion of ‘musical time’, and to bring to the listener the sense of time-freedom.
