VISI.ON.AIR. Live: performance / installation
by Umut Eldem
What does music look like on a screen?
‘Trace’ is an interactive installation that turns music into visuals on a screen. Streamed on the tv-channel ‘VISI.ON.AIR’, anyone can participate in this installation by leaving online “voice mails”. These recordings will be used for the duration of the installation. Different sounds, speech, notes, instruments, and melodies create all kinds of different colours and shapes on the canvas. Inspired by synaesthetes -people who see colours and shapes when they hear music-, everyone is welcome to come and paint!
Umut Eldem’s research on synaesthesia explores how the senses combine in the artistic world. With artistic and scientific experiments on the nature of our audiovisual perception, he creates performances and installations where the visual and aural world combine into a synaesthetic experience. This installation is a part of his exploration of turning the musical experience into a visual one.
