The project is a result of collaboration between sound and visual artists.
A fresh look at the ordinary materials and basic chemical reactions.
The experimental character of the work reminds of primitive alchemical processes of searching for unknown wonders, where the substances’ peculiar tactile qualities are revealed through careful analyze.
This subjective way of documenting diverse transformations indicates the fascination with the matter’s physical features in visual as well as sonic outcome. Recorded fizzing, splashing or cracking has been processed and compounded into more complex layers of abstract track, which makes audio more analogue to the image. The combination of visual impact and hypnotic sound results in slightly claustrophobic, but contemplative experience.
