Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
Independent Curators International, ISBN 0916365719 If the trials of the relationship between sound and image have their roots in analog but equally effervescent seventies, many of those ideas are taken up and developed to mutate into new concepts, through the paradigms of digital technology. From the historical works of Nam June Paik / Jud Yalkut, Gary Hill and Steina / Woody Vasulka gradually transition to Robin Rimbaud / Scanner, the collective D-Fuse, Steven Vitiello, Atau Tanaka, Granular-Synthesis and Fred Szymanski, scanning many different aspects of that which binds the stimulation of the retina to that of the eardrum. From generation induced by one of two factors (the sound that affects the evolution of graphic design and vice versa) emulation of synaesthetic phenomena, from the sound made in its possible morphological characteristics of the voice, inextricably linked to the physical features of the person issuing it, this catalog , an expression of ' eponymous exhibition at Eyebeam in New York makes the combination of the sense of the images with the sound to which they bind. But, one wonders, this link is not always present in the current production of audiovisual works? In fact the link between image and sound that varies in time is ever more closely, but are multiple levels in which this 'tune' is far from 'symbiosis' here sought. From the soundtrack to the video and VJing (opposite ways to process before an item and then 'derive' the other), going through the process of realization of the installation, the two elements (visual and auditory) remain independent unless you want them bind within the process of creation. In this way their own genetic code turns to collect the alien elements of the counterparty, in a reciprocal mutation that eventually enriches both, innovating in unison.
