Sonic patterning residency 18th-20th 2015
I’m amazed at what can be done in a short space of time – especially if you are fortunate enough to be surrounded by other people who have a different set of skills. I arrived on the sonic residency with an idea and by the closing event had not only achieved what I set out to do but it was pushed beyond what I had even considered.
What began as an idea for creating patterns through recording gesture became a visual and audio performance.
Here are some photos of my “instruments” that I produced in collaboration over the course of the residency – the red sensor created the stitch patterns from the gestures of my right hand stitching and my left hand was hooked up to a tilt sensor which created some amazing whooshing noises (manipulated by the very talented Sean Cotterill) and the really stunning graph. A massive thank you to Alex McLean for getting the code to work!
