Waves Storming Beneath: 

An audio-visual evocation of stormy waters. (2014)

 

Sound and concept: Ben Kelly

 

 

Synthesiser controlled by oil painting and multi-instrument improvised performance inspired by original field recordings of stormy waters in Leigh-on-Sea, Porthleven, Southwold and Whitstable. 

 

Painting a visual interpretation of the environment from the sonic with oils on canvass composes the main compositional elements of the music, inducing a parallel state of consciousness between the act of painting and performing, that draws upon the subconscious.

 

Developed from last years project Cazenove Nigun, and 12 months of sound-painting development, this project culminates to a one off painting and vinyl record to be exhibited in a season of five psychogeographic and environmentally themed sound-paintings.
