An excerpted two of the three sound pieces:
Visual artist Keti Kartveli and composer Brian Chase present their new collaboration, Correlations, a series of handmade 'cards' paired with specifically crafted audio pieces. These multimedia works explore the abstract relationship between the sonic and visual arts: rhythm, harmony and pitch are translated into the two-dimensional medium of paint and ink on paper, and vice versa; sound vibrations resonate through gestural brushstrokes and tonal colors echo through a vibrant palette - music theory meets color theory. The fifty-five ‘cards’ are derived from three large scale artworks and presented atop Museum-grade archival paper. Within their remarkable diversity, these artworks symbolically represent a dynamic balance of playfulness/restraint, density/emptiness, and appearance/disappearance. On the reverse side of each card is a link to three sound pieces from Brian's Drums and Drones project. These sound pieces, through their careful attention to tuning and acoustic details, offer a sonic environment of infinite depth within a minimalist design. Taken together, the artworks of Correlations suggest a spontaneous fluidity of meanings geared towards generating a greater sense of interconnectedness.
