CuratorSpace Artist Bursary #16: Geraint Edwards
Geraint Edwards' practice is an exploration of the art-object in an age of the non-object. Through various media such as painting, video, sculptural installation and web-based art, he explores the relationship between our physical and virtual worlds and interrogates our experience and behaviour within and between them.
"My project is the result of a long period of engagement with sound, from football crowds to the gaps in music. The work explores the idea of deconstructing and rearranging a piece of music, using multiple audio components which are triggered simultaneously, like one enormous chord on a very tall score. This sonic equivalent of a colour wheel will create an entirely new sound, blended and free of hierarchy: the 'fingerprint' of the work.
The piece of music I have chosen is the Moonlight Sonata as it has 1154 easily identifiable, discrete piano notes. The work will be installed in a gallery space and set to trigger once an hour, on the hour. I plan to create more versions so that different 'fingerprints' of different pieces of music can be played and compared."
