Capillaries Capillaries is an audiovisual composition based on a non-hierarchical relationship between sound and image in real-time. Therefore the piece does not represent a visualisation of music or sonification of an image but rather a tangle of audiovisual interactions. In a bottom-up compositional approach, every compositional decision came as a consequence of cross- fertilisation between both modalities.
The work extends the idea of an audiovisual object to an audio-visual-time object - that is a tangle of interactions between sound, geometry and time. Audio-visual-time object is treated as a (meta)physical material inside a high-voltage continuum. The tensity of the continuum arises from the imbalance between various forces that pull the material in varied directions. Since the material is a complex audio-visual-time object the result is often impossible to predict. Exploring the emerging structures and their behaviours is the main focus of the piece.
The concept represents the translation of the id, ego and super-ego model to the audiovisual world. Just as the ego is established between the two groups of conflicting forces that constitute, distort, constraint, liberate, punish or disperse our subjectivity, so too is the material of Capillaries Capillaries. What we observe throughout the work is one and the same material transformed in different ways.
