Caroline de Lannoy's sound work ‘Still-Life’ consists of an audio-composition, recorded and edited on digital audio tape, and transferred to CD. The sound piece includes spoken words that are mixed and manipulated to create a sound space. These words are composed as a ‘sound poem’, to create an imaginary artwork or ‘a fantasy still-life picture’, and to develop thinking spaces relating to everyday life objects. The piece is composed from fragmented words and phonetic sequences to be heard as whole united sound collage.
In ‘Still-Life’ Caroline de Lannoy is interested in translating the wealth of insight acquired from painting into sound/music. She investigates the relationship between sound, image and text, using simplicity to amplify emotion. She explores reductionism on a magnified scale in both sonic and visual terms. She focuses on the function of perception through the history of still-life painting and text-based practices that intersect with specialization and sound design to reveal new sound and space structures.
The sound work ‘Still-Life’ is written, composed, performed and produced by CAROLINE DE LANNOY.
