The Partitas in Infrasound unfold through the interaction between light and shadow moving before and as a result of the cinema apparatus, and immersing the viewer into the composition—a delicate projection, strobe-like and flickering with a rhythm directed solely by the sonic oscillation. The Partitas in Infrasound envelope a meditative silence, while performing a complex and hypnotic musical composition challenging the sensorial perception of sound, space, and time. The fluid rises to a wave’s crest catching light and producing a glimpse into the amplitude, and casting shadows into the corresponding valleys. The work oscillates between physics and composition, real and abstraction, presence and absence, addition and reduction.
This work manifests in digital cinema as the direct translation of the physical event, consciously creating a film with no cuts or digital manipulation. The subsequent effects are produced through sonic composition—an abstraction, through the real (unmolested by editing), producing a reduction through high-resolution and repositioning the sensorial experience of sounds we cannot hear.
