The audiovisual spatial installation combines a video projection screened via vertical objects hanging in the White Room Gallery space, accompanied by music inspired by recorded sounds of the moving sticks. Thus the rhythm of the color sticks spatial arrangement and the rhythm of the musical composition is correlated, while the sticks’ shapes determine the visual semblance of the projection. This way the installation becomes a “living” three-dimensional score. The musical composition acquires several dimensions with the help of various techniques – sound, computer animation, and spatial installation. The intrinsic architecture of the composition, its tempo, is based on the mathematical principle of dividing the number 300, while the rhythm is derived from the observation of suspended objects. The resulting composition is complemented by an electronic post-production. The installation investigates the relationship between painting, graphics, sound, movement and an object; it fills in the complete gallery space, while accentuating the site-specific aspect.
The exhibition name - Gammatone, comes from joining Italian word gamma – scale, scope, and English word tone. At the same time, the name evokes the Pantone color range.
