Through the Looking Sound

Virtual kaleidoscope

Through the Looking Sound is an installation that introduces an artificial kaleidoscope as a conceptual tool for the reading of the score.

Its basic concept is the use of musical notation as a mean of representation and artistic visualisation of music composition. This project in progress investigates the common vocabulary of gestures that trigger our senses in order to shape the compositional consciousness of the observer. The very same aleatoric character of the composition is materialised through the idea of the kaleidoscope and its interactive use by the viewer.

This manual kaleidoscope aims at the objectification of the process of composition itself.  Its main objective is to enhance the understanding of the creative process by a wider public.
