bazGRANIE (disPLAYING). Concerto for Painter, Actor and Electronics
The project depends on the mutual interaction of three components: drawing/painting, video, and sound actions. Video images from a camera hand-operated by the actor are the starting point. Movements of the camera are recorded and projected in real time on a canvas, on which the painter draws and “documents” them. The actor with the camera enters into genuine interaction with the painter. He influences the painter by consciously directing his camera. The image projected on the canvas clearly impacts the process of drawing and its dynamics. About a dozen pickups are attached to the canvas, so that each time the surface gradually painted over is touched, sound is produced. This sound is transformed live by the composer/electroacoustician.
