“The work advection consists of several visual études projected on the continuously changing volume of a water fountain. Interconnected with both the circadian rhythm of their natural surroundings as well as the meteorological nuances of seasonal change from autumn to winter – the fixed études alter their density, texture and luminescence over the exhibition time.” – Robert Seidel.
I created a skeletal music composition, designed for the constant backdrop of the rushing fountain. Dense orchestral moments contrast with subtle digital glitches and stretches of near-silence. Processed water sound recordings made at the venue augment the environmental sounds of the fountain. A synced sound design layer supports the movements in the animation.
Listen to a 2-minute excerpt of the piece below. This composition was played at the exhibition venue, where it blended with the sounds of the fountain.
