The video has been produced in a framework of the Artist-in-Residence program at Kunstnarhuset Messen in Ålvik, Norway.

The video consists of scenes of majestic Norwegian landscape, in which the moving figure delivers luminous markers and determines the pitch on the scale of each frame, from higher to lower. Each marker causes different pitch of sound. These chords reveal a specific approach, where some primary elements of a composed work’s realization are left to the determination of its performer. In the lower part of the frame there are screen records, captured in Max/MSP, creative software environment. Virtual instruments are constantly generating music notated in the landscapes above.

The project has been presented during exhibitions listed below:

  • Residents, Propaganda Gallery, Warsaw Gallery Weekend (PL), 2017
  • CoCArt Festival, video screening, Centre of Contemporary Art, Toruń (PL), 2017
  • The Drawers vol. 2, Kasia Michalski Gallery, Warsaw (PL), 2016
