You Are the Chime

Of Liminal Spaces

Is a Net Art series that I worked on as part of The Current Sea, the creative studio that Sarah Zucker and I founded. The series, ⌘ALTAR, combines animated GIF, photography, sound and net art to produce a truely unique experience. 

For You Are the Chime, I collaborated with Ang Wilson on creating sounds that were rhythmic, ethereal and acoustic. We wanted to keep the sounds as organic as possible so that use of percussion, ukulele, flute, singing bowls, bass and voice gave us the sounds we were looking for. Light synth was used sparingly, which tied back into the Net Art imagery.

The musical compositions are designed for and inspired by Internet. Each track is short and inteded to loop continuiously in conjuntion with a particular image. In the case of You Are the Chime, the still images funtion as Play Buttons which trigger the loops, while simultaniously animating the previously-static picture.
