Musical Analysis

Musical Analysis

Drawing, Technological, Abstract geometrical, Graphite, 27.6x30.4x0.1cm
Artistic research, taking risk to gain knowledge is a fundament of my existence as an artist. This sketch documents the attempt of finding music in things -- by the means of a set of rules transferring objects into music.

The drawing is done on to bits of transparent paper, the second applied on the top of the bigger one as an extension.

Dear Patrick, it's from x-y-z. There are drawings from front and from the side for this, too. The front is here at Celeste https://www.celesteprize.com/artwork/ido:454242/ — the side at Saatchi's https://www.saatchiart.com/art/Drawing-W-48/777303/2499420/view . You get chords when x, y and z differ, else single eighth-notes or trioles. Timeline comes from the scanning process along a spiral around the object. Yes, it's playable. It's from an old project 20 years ago, I have the notation somewhere... Thanks for your interest, Christian

so the music is coded from the x-y coordinates, or from the x-y-z coordinates (as this one looks like it is projected perpendicular to the x-y plane). Interesting, can you play it?
