Konstantine Lortkipanidze (aka Koki / resident composer at Synetic Theater) and I have started on a visual audio project together under the title "Headache." It's still in its conceptual stage with few initial sketches of ideas to inspire each other. I am designing the structure and the multimedia material to be projected on it that will be choreographed to Koki's music. We are currently shooting for a 10minute miniature piece to be filmed and distributed online. The goal is to eventually make this project life size and take it to a live music event. Information on the project will be updated as it progresses and you will be able to witness its growth on this page.
Exploring the soundscape, June 2013
No matter the final product, I always like to start creating a project with a physical material that I can touch, feel, and interact with. It happens to be paper and pencil most of times due to convenience, but it was wire this time. It made total sense to me to do so when I visualized the brain and all the complex happenings in it. I will work with CAD, then Zbrush, and finalize the design to be printed 3D. I will start producing multimedia content as the design of the structure becomes clearer. I'm also hoping to explore some interactive technology with the live music.
