Das audio-visuelle Album erscheint im Mai auf Raster-Noton

Raster-Notons Frank Bretschneider wird im Mai eine neue audio-visuelle Arbeit mit dem Namen “EXP” auf seinem Label, das er gemeinsam mit Olaf Bender betreibt, veröffentlichen. Die Idee hinter dem Album erläutert das Press-Sheet wie folgt:

“EXP is a music-visual work based on the idea that fine art should attain the abstract purity of music. an attempt to assimilate the qualities found in music – including movement, rhythm, tempo, mood, intensity and compositional structure – within visual phenomena. the music for the project was composed of specifi c generated and selected waveforms, feedbacks, impulses, clicks, the sound of mechanics, electricity, magnetism, light and other radiation. in addition and since the animation is mainly driven by sound frequency and intensity, the sonic quality of these sounds makes it possible to obtain an optimal effect on the graphics motion. in combination with several other ways of controlling the animation – from midi programming to applying motion curves – the visualization represents an exact reproduction of the audible occurrences. as a consequence the computed images often attain anunexpected beauty, from simple geometrical patterns to extraordinarily complex forms.”

“EXP” vereint eine Audio-CD mit den 35 Tracks und eine CD mit einem Quicktime-Files der Visuals zu den ersten 20 Tracks. Wer sich die Visuals schon mal angucken möchte, kann das hier tun.
