Event description

Description

Verstehen is an ongoing performance series by artist Emily Rankin and multimedia artist Meason Wiley that explores various approaches to sonic + visual interaction, focusing on methods of conversation between two artists of different mediums. Each performance takes a unique approach to real-time creation of interactive multimedia art in front of an audience. Both the sound and visual components are directly influenced by each other by a series of conversational “rules” defined by the artists. Additionally, there are various technological components to the performance that allow each artist to control and/or influence the other performer’s work. For example, the sound of specific performance may be generated through camera-tracking/color detection of the painter’s motion, color choices, or position of brush on the canvas. The artist's have also developed a set of guidelines for communicating during a performance through means of sonic and visual notation, which gives either artist the ability to alter the direction of the work on the fly by adjusting the sound, shifting the color, or by changing the brush stroke. These methods of communication are primarily linked to Emily's chromesthesia, which allows her the unique ability to see sound as specific colors, textures, and shapes. www.cyclespersecond.org/#/verstehen
