The project from visual artist and Creator Quayola is another audiovisual collaboration with Abstract Birds, who he teamed up with previously for Partitura 001, a real-time generative sound visualisation inspired by Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oscar Fischinger, and Norman McLaren.
Using the same Partitura custom software (below), the work from Quayola and Abstract Birds is called Partitura-Ligeti and had been shown at the Nemo Festival in Paris 2012. The piece involves both a live performance—based on composer Ligeti’s sonata for viola solo and performed by Odile Auboin—and a triptych installation at MAC de Créteil.
Six Ligeti pieces were transformed into a visual score, translating the sounds into abstract shapes and geometric forms—and much like many of Quayola’s previous AV work, explores the concept of synesthesia in regards to sound and image.
