Kakuta Takuya is an art unit composed of Satoshi Kakuta and hosono takuya.
We quest possibilities of video camera as musical instrument.
Capture by video camera what actually exists in front of it, branch the video signal into two,one projected as image as it is on the wall from a video projector, the other as it is a video signal againe
connect directly to the sound system and output as sound from the speakers.
Basically it will sound any video signal. However, for better sounds,
scrutiny / adjustment of image objects is indispensable, and we think that this process is equivalent to general music composing acts.
In addition,during the performance,the action that affects the image,such as zooming of the video camera, adjustment of the shutter · focus · diaphragm,changing the angle, is reflected in the sound, that is, it turns into a performance of the instrument.Furthermore, the work is completed by emphasizing / declining a specific frequency band of the sound.
And the works created by the above process we call them comprehensively VIDEO MUSIC .
"MILK" is one production of our VIDEO MUSIC project and performed on March 9th 2011 at AOMORI MUSEUM OF ART.
