Artistic collaboration with L.A. based composer and sound designer Benjamin Wynn (aka DERU) on his latest album production “We Will Live On”.
We Will Live On
About the album
“Written with the backdrop of news about the worsening climate crisis and pandemic isolation, made themes of legacy, loneliness, helplessness, love and hope emerge. The title, We Will Live On, is meant as a question. Will we? And if so, in what way? Will this outlive me? Will technology outlive all of us?…”
Deru was using a sequencer based on geometries inside a circle to create the music and a Disklavier (an acoustic piano outfitted with solenoids that allowed it to be digitally controlled) to play it.

About the artworks
As my general approach for my artworks also incorporates a digital to analog process, I used various digital information and paramters of the music to create these art pieces.
Frequency and loudness values of each song were extracted and transformed into vertical lines of different densities, overlayed by hatched blocks of different structures that represent the pitches.
These digital files were then printed using a pen plotter.
Choosing half empty pens for the backgrounds was intended to create a unique and not reproducible look.
