*** This is a 3 minute preview clip for the original 1080P, 9 minute installation film / For more information on the project please see: mitchgoodwin.wordpress.com/mineral-machine-music/ ***
Mineral Machine Music was audio visual collaboration between geologist Clement Fay and media artist Mitch Goodwin. Mineral Machine Music is a collaborative exploration of the fabric of the earth as seen from the stage of a microscope and the lens of the industrialized city. Blending cityscape with substrate Fay & Goodwin compliment the imagery with layers of sonic noise - musical representations of tectonic activity, echoes of the universe from deep space and the groans of the restless earth all juxtaposed against the industrial machine ambiance of a New York city subway.
The project was recently shortlisted for the prestigious Lumen Digital Arts Prize and will tour Athens, New York, London, Cardiff and Amsterdam from late 2014 into early 2015. The film debuted in its original installation configuration at the Synthesis Exhibition at Umbrella Studios in Townsville in January 2014. Since that time the work has been selected as a finalist for the Arcanum Film and Animation Festival in Estonia, screened at the Color Arts Festival in Hungary (June 2014) installed in its gallery configuration at Prism 16 at Sheffield in the UK (July 2014) and screened at the Electric Shorts film festival at the Melbourne Fringe in October 2014.
