Absolute Pitch – Whitstable Biennale 2014

Absolute Pitch (1)

The five film loops criss-cross through the space slicing through the semi-dark. With the lenses pulled out of focus, the projectors throw large diffuse spots of colour and filmstrip shadow onto the walls and ceiling, the voices coinciding as the pentatonic harmony shifts through differing degrees of consonance.

Devised with composer Richard Glover. Co-commissioned by Whitstable Biennale 2014 and ICIA University of Bath.
