Sculptural Musical Weather Scores

Translate weather data into sculptures and music. A series of musical scores entirely based on weather data, which are adapted by composers to musical performance. In conjunction, these scores are also translated into woven sculptural, data translations that also function as 3D musical scores. Weaving as a highly effective grid through which to interpret data in three-dimensional space and sound.

Field Recording Photos

A photographic and audible study of nature. 'Nash Point / Monk Nash' is a photographic, phonographic and electro-acoustic study of a stretch of the Glamorgan coastline recorded over a year. The area is hostile to humans: unstable collapsing stones, strong currents and low frequency rumble, give it a sense of otherness. The area fluctuates between stillness and violence, quiet and noise: noise that silences the internal monologue. On a calm day the sound of the lone gong buoy resonates clearly and carries to the shore. The walk from Nash Point down to Monk Nash can be eerily peaceful, and yet instability always hangs in the air. #WillParker #mono_on #SoundArt #FieldRecording #Photography #ContemporaryArt #Photo #NashPoint #MonkNash #Acoustics #EnvironmentalSound

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

Audio Foam Cutter

A fully analog and kinetic way of sound visualisation. The Audio Foam Cutter transforms sound into styrofoam. A hot-wire cutter mounted on a servo motor which is controlled by audio signals, allows users to real-time cut the sound input vertically into the material. The resulting cutouts can be used to assemble casting molds or they can stand alone as  sound sculptures.

Yarn installation lets you experience music physically

A colourful creation, made from yarn, that represents the sounds of music in a physical form. 'Synth' is taking place in the decaying atmosphere of an abandoned Washington D.C. building. The lines of yarn let you follow along becoming connected with the piece and the more you do so, the colours blend drawing you to another world, just like music does.
