The CD contains a new long-form sound work, "Untitled (geomancy)". The piece was created from field recordings that were subject to a series of material and digital transformations: the original recordings were cut to a series of acetate phonograph records for an installation work in 2008, and these well-worn records, revealing a new landscape of their own in both sound and texture, became the basis for the composition. The DVD collects four of Graydon's super 8 films on video. "Farwanderer", a story of finding identity in displacement, is the keystone work, revealing themes that are central to much of Graydon's film work. "Surroundings" evokes a restless sense of place more directly in images and music. "Focal Plane" is based on a live image and sound performance piece, and deals with the coming to life of an environment from the most fundamental elements of light, shape, motion -- and how these are always something less and something more than they seem. "Untitled (Aina)" is a visual field recording of sorts, showing environments on the islands of Hawaii where natural and human processes are set in friction or resonance, and accompanied by sound from the original acetate records used to create the "Untitled (geomancy)" sound composition - こちらの商品はCDとDVDのセット商品になります。 CD : Untitled (geomancy) 一曲51分58秒からなるこの作品は、7つの曲カウンターをデータにつけることでCDプレーヤー(あるいはiTunesなど)のシャッフル機能による曲構成の変換を可能にし、しかしながら作品のもつ雰囲気を壊すことなく再生されるように、綿密に計算され制作されています。 その結果、一曲のヴァリエーションが7の7乗通り存在する作品といえます。 また、CD+DVDセットとなっていますが、曲はDVDのサウンドトラックではなく、あくまで独立したサウンドピースです。 DVD : 4作品 Andy Graydon は様々な美術館やギャラリーでインスタレーション作品を発表しています。今回はその中からDVDで再構築できる映像4作品を収録。また全作品ともDVD仕様にフレームを変更しています。 8mmビデオで撮った映像を別のオブジェクトに投影し、それらを再度撮影し独自の質感を出している1と2。 まるでジェームスタレルのようなの暗闇の中から現れてくる光る作品は徐々に形を変えてある具体的な映像に変化していくような3、そして繰り返される映像はまるで中毒性を併せ持つような4という、彼の真骨頂でもあるフィルム作品の集大成となっています。 アーティスト: Andy Graydon(アンディ・グレイドン) 2008年までNEW YORKを拠点(現在ベルリン在住)に様々な美術作品を制作発表している。特にインスタレーション作品はNEW YORKでの美術批評では信頼を獲得しているメディアNY SunとVillage Voiceで絶賛される。 またLine主催のリチード・シャルティエのキューレションによる展覧会でも作品発表予定。 美術作品にとどまらず、音楽作品も様々なレーベルより発表している。 Andy Graydon Andy Graydon (b. 1971, Maui, Hawaii) is an artist and filmmaker based in Berlin. His work focuses on the interaction of sound, image, and environment. In his recent work Andy is interested in creating what he calls "Science Fiction Ecologies" by engaging with the speculative and transformational qualities within an environment. Taking the form of videos, sound works, media objects and installations this work explores the boundary zones between performance and exhibition, presence and deferral, liveness and mediation. Graydon has presented work nationally and internationally in programs such as Ausland, Berlin, the Worldwide Video Festival, Amsterdam, and the Portland Art Center, Oregon. Recent exhibitions and performances in New York City include work at The New Museum of Contemporary Art, LMAKprojects gallery, Diapason, Art In General, Participant Inc gallery, Galeria Galou, The Dumbo Arts Festival, Millennium Film Workshop, White Box gallery, and Tonic. In 2005/2006 he was the visiting artist at the Center for Computer Music, Brooklyn College, CUNY. Recent sound releases are available on Non Visual Objects (Vienna), Winds Measure Recordings (Brooklyn), 12k/Term (New York), EKO (Paris), On;(do) Music (Miami), The NY Society for Acoustic Ecology, and forthcoming from White_Line Editions (UK). Collaborations include performances and recordings with John Hudak, Kato Hideki, Kenneth Kirschner, sawako, Amnon Wolman, David Grubbs, Ben Owen, Zach Layton, Andre Golcalves, Brendan Murray, mpld, and Richard Garet. He is the co-founder and curator of three media and performance series in New York City: Becoming, Sonogrammar, and the upcoming LMAKseries. www.andygraydon.net
