Title: Reflections, Cycles and Transformations
Author: Krista Dintere
Technology: Sound piece, Stereo audio, 12.23.
Sound is a time-based medium. If not fixed, sound events leave no trace behind but a memory of what you just heard.
Recorded sounds are like reflections of natural sounds. Recording technologies can be seen as an extension of human hearing and memory. By means of a recorder, one can access sound repeatedly, can zoom in and focus on small sounds, can manipulate, even touch can become a tool for fixing sounds when recording surface vibrations with a contact mic, all these means lead to greater width and depth of perception which could not be accessed without technological augmentation.
In my work "Reflections, cycles and transformations" by completing many transformative cycles one fixed sound reflection can become a whole score of sounds. Composition constructs reality in a cycle from natural to abstract and back. Natural forms in images are intertwined with visual representations of the fabric of the sound spectrum.
