Monaural: LP paintings

A group of new paintings focuses on famous album covers. White mixes up both the original content as well as the meaning of these images and forces us to look and interpret them again. A large freestanding work is based on the legendary ‘White Album’ aptly titled The Beatles (2016). It is a centrepiece of the exhibition. White recreated the gatefold record as a sculpture painting five times the scale of the original, a monument to music. The recognition of their design is shared by many of us on an unspoken visceral level. Present in our visual memory, they are an expression of a period or particular time in our lives. According to #MikeNewton : “These are exercises in both loving fidelity to their widely-revered sources, and cheeky impertinence in the face of fading cultural legacies.”

Soft Revolvers

A music performance for four acryl spinning tops. Each spinning top, 10’ in diameter, is associated with an ‘instrument’ or part in an electronic music composition. Gyroscopes and accelerometers communicate with a computer where the motion data is collected (speed, instability, acceleration, etc.) which is used for a music algorithm. LEDs placed inside the tops illuminate the body of the objects in counterpoint to the music. A camera placed above the performance table provides a video projection behind the artist, as an integral part of the performance. The behaviour of the objects adds unpredictability and makes each performance unique. #MyriamBleau #SoundArt #PerformanceArt #SpinningTop #Turntabllism #MusicPerformance #ContemporaryArt #DJ #HipHop #ElectronicMusic #VideoArt
