Next gallery tour on marybauermeister.org

I just published a new gallery tour/video featuring a pointillistic work my mother Mary Bauermeister created in 1961:

Felder und Zentren
fluorescent color on canvas
Provenance: Collection Mary Bauermeister

You can switch to full screen mode at the bottom right of your browser. The musical textures and sounds you hear in the soundtrack were mostly extracted/derived directly from the work itself (using various special techniques and software) which becomes more obvious towards the end of the tour. Laptop speakers won’t do the sound any justice but of course it sounds o.k., even on shabby speakers.

Here is the link.

And here is the overview page for all five tours we published so far.

New gallery tour on marybauermeister.org

Here comes the next gallery tour for our virtual gallery on marybauermeister.org - a monumental, very archaic work my mum created in 1962 named Sandhalme (Sandhaulms), made with/from all kinds of materials including a wasp nest. My music and sound design follows the deep impression it made on me, it's one of my favorite works I must say. Check it out here.

You will find all the credits at the end of the video. Use full screen mode please, good speakers or at least some decent headphones, laptop speakers or iPhones are not made for this kind of audio stuff.

Through The Tunnel

Composed, played and mixed this new track though the night after waking up from a great dream, a ride through the tunnel of my brain.
