。sonorous paintings project 。
It is expected to release the project under 4 different audio-visual formats:
。exhibition 。concert 。performance 。micro-robots ballet
FORMAT 1: Exhibition of paintings with soundtrack
Each painting will be showed along with his percussion beaters and with the 8 composition recordings on loop.
The audience may bites pictures, creating their own music while superimposed on recorded music.
While the initial distribution will be 8 paintings that each contains a series of tiles, sometimes we can make more open installation, remove some tiles from the paintings and make an invasive occupation of the space.
FORMAT 2: Duet for bass clarinet and sonorous paintings.
I aim to provide the opportunity to Nani Garcia to create a musical composition: "Duet for bass clarinet and sonorous paintings”. Bass clarinet will be played by Xocas Meijide. Percussion (sonorous paintings) by Miguel Cabana. Sound technician will be Xavier Ferreiro (Man).
FORMAT 3: Electroacoustic Trio
In this case, composition "Duet for bass clarinet and sonorous pictures" will be performed by Xocas Meijide (bass clarinet), Guillermo Aymerich (sonorous paintings) and an electro-acoustic musician, who will receive the sounds emitted by sonorous paintings, for processing it in real time and will returning it handled in consonance with music on live. The composition "duet for bass clarinet and pictures" will be performed by Xocas Meijide (bass clarinet), Guillermo Aymerich (sound boxes) and an electro-acoustic musician, who will receive the sounds emitted by sonorous pictures, process it in real time and the return handled for consonant with live music.
FORMAT 4: Micro-robotic ballet
8 swarm robots will be designed and programmed to move stimulated by the sound produced by each of the sound paintings.
。Software: the swarm robots will interact between themselves depending on what the other specimens do.
。Hardware: tropical wood will be used in the design; each type of wood will correspond to each of the sound paintings.
The ballet stage will be each echo chamber, made of tropical wood. Inside, zones of soft paint, so that the robot movements will leave a painted stroke as a result of the motorized movement of each specimen element and the track it makes: legs, wheels, caterpillar belt, ball, fidget spring and wings.
