Artifacts

  • The painting is missing its sound, but it is not retrievable.
  • The audio recording is not the sound of the painting because the painting is seen all at once.
  • The two are divorced from one another.
  • The only way to associate sounds with the painting is to be there when it’s made, and hear the sounds for the marks as they’re being made.
  • The completed painting has no sound.
  • The two are related: the recorded sound and the complete painting.

From my reflective statement, written in 2011.

ABOUT

Takahashi's Shellfish Concern merges sonic and visual information into a single transmission during improvised performances. I think we're all exploring consciousness, and I want to realize with every thought and expression that I am that through which the universe speaks. TSC helps me in trying to do this. We are based in Manchester, England.
