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.
