Composing with Audio-visuals

Mark Pilkington discusses approaches to working with audio-visual media to create electroacoustic music, focusing on the composition Current 9 (2018) that integrates non-representational imagery with electronic sounds through an interactive performance platform. The will offers a rare insight into working practices and a chance to have first-hand experience of a custom-built music system. This particular piece consists of coded structures and stop-frame animations that form an interactive graphic score in motion. His practice encapsulates both sound and image as a means to extend spatial imaginings between real and virtual space. The coupling of sound and image are applied to electroacoustic music, installation and screen-based works. Forging immaterial and creative labour through a network of interwoven and augmented territories, his work increasingly queries the way operations carry great critical and creative potential. Seeking new modes of critical engagement that incorporate multiple narratives through non-digital and digital aesthetic informs the direction of his practice.
