Recomposing David Bowie

re·com·pose (rē′kəm-pōz′)

To compose again; to form anew; to put together again or repeatedly.

Filmbar and Amplified at Phoenix Art Museum present an installation of experimental audio-video loops to mark the occasion of David Bowie’s birthday on Jan 8th

The audio is constructed from time stretched reverb tails which retain a spectral image of Bowie’s voice, but the voice is no longer there.

Through a series of speakers, the room fills with contemplative sound as the audio loops overlap and collide with each other in interesting ways

The video loop presents a series of time-lapse clay visages of David Bowie regenerating from a dissolved state.

Together, the audio and video provide a fluid environment for reflection.

As with many things Bowie did throughout his life, there is a sense of discovery and reinvention as the sound and vision unfolds.

Recomposing David Bowie [see more] is one component of an ongoing and continually evolving, multi piece collaborative art project by Sylvia Frost and Bryn Corbett

but oddly soothing. A deceptively simple piece which builds wonderfully.

Takes me away
Well that was a headspace that was impossible to escape from! Nicely done, Really fine job on the sonic evolution and organic qualities. Reminds me of Reinholt56's work in a more spare setting. Or maybe Eno. Either way, a good listen!
