Sound in Stone: Audio Visual Works in Progress

For this research I took documentary footage and combined it with high quality audio recordings, all of which were recorded during my 6 month research. These include recordings of stone instrument, recordings in caves and other atmospheres, recordings of our deep listening journey in a stone quarry, and interviews with experts in the fields of history, geology, biology, anthropology and anthropology, as well as local teachers, sharing their knowledge(s) of lived and practiced traditions. I then used Resolve, Resolume and Bitwig to create short audio visual works where the audio and video dialogue with each other–prompting one to respond to the other, and vise-versa. An effect of this strategy is magnetic and trancelike quality to the musical and visual experience.
