"Spectral Strands (Giacinto Scelsi: Manto)" is a part of a collection of works commissioned from the the ZKM's (Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe, Germany) Institut für Musik & Akustik and the Institut für Bildmedien.

"Spectral Strands" is a collaboration between Garth Knox performing viola (at times with electronic treatments) and myself manipulating real time visualizations. The moving images use source materials based on extreme close up footage i shot of Garth performing on the viola, then processed using Tom Demeyer's ImX software, with further editing and transformations using FCP to create the fixed form presented here.
