“DUST” is a visual/sound work, a collaboration with visual artist Mariska De Groot. Based on the concept of optical sound (old technique of capturing sound on film also used at the first synthesizers) and influenced from lots of different aesthetics (first soviet films to post-industrial age) the work consists on projections, on screen as well as on loudspeakers, of basic shapes and on different forms occurring from their interaction with light-flickering. Sounds were recorded using Mariska’s specially designed “tonewheels” and a score made forming a short story. My goal was to use the projected sounds of certain shapes in a narrative way, amplifying the “character” of abstract forms and leading to different mental states and emotions. Visuals and sounds influence each other in all their aspects, in such a level that they also work perfectly autonomous.
