This is work from the first of the two modules of mysecond year. For this project I decided to combine my interest in music with my artistic practice. My main influence during this module was the piano piece Passaggio by Ludovico Einaudi. I worked with the sheet music for this piece to create visual work, as well as going in to the Deep Blue Sound studios to record myself performing the piece. (09/10)
After hearing a radio programme in which they discussed the notable differences which occur in different orchestral renditions of the same piece of music. I used this idea to create the black lines you now see running across the work. The upper line is the one I drew whilst listening to Einaudi's original recording and the lower is from my own recording of the piece. Through doing this I found areas which ran almost parallel and others which were very different. I found this an interesting way in which to analyse the two recordings.
This project also coincided with an Art History module entitled 'The interdisciplinary city' which focused on Vienna in the 1900's. A household name at the time was composer and conducter Gustav Mahler, who I instantly became obsessed with. These are just a couple of pages from my influence book.
