LutoScratch - an aleatoric interactive installation
LutoScratch:: an aleatoric interactive installation
Aleatoric interactive installation "LutoScratch" - premiered during Media Art Biennale WRO 2013 at BWA Szkło i Ceramika Gallery - is a new work by the artist regularly exploring the relations between visual arts and sound. The installation is inspired by and pays the homage to the ouvre of Lutoslawski.
The installation transfers image and sound using DJ’s techniques. Visitors, using three turntables provided by the installation, may individually or collectively experiment, by modifying the percussion piece specially recorded for the installation. It begins with a short invocation by Lutoslawski on aleatoric music and its principles.
Visitors may use any standard turntable technique: slow-down, stop or accelerate the turn by pressing the record with their fingers, scratching, moving the needle to another position on the record, etc., thus controlling individual parts of the video projection and modifying the image.
Moreover the installation allows for interaction using mobile devices (tablets, smartphones) as well network communication (using the specially developed online application).
The installation is curated by Piotr Krajewski, and produced by WRO Art Center
The audiovisual component of the installation was recorded in the ATM Studios in Wrocław/Poland on April 15th, 2013.
The kettledrum was lent by the Grażyna Bacewicz 1st Degree Musical School in Wroclaw/Poland.
