Searching through old drives, I found this piece, done in 2003.
Images were derived from photos of the earth seen from orbit (NASA’s “Earth as Art”), and the music was composed (after the images were done) by Thierry Van Roy, with magnificent voice improvisation by Said "El Asfour" Mohammed Najib (also a remarkable ney player).
I presented this piece to an audience that could understand the lyrics only twice, during lectures at the "Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts” and the "université Saint-Esprit de Kaslik" in Beirut, Lebanon (March 2008), and the response was very warm.
The title of the music, "Shouf Wou Skout," means something like "shut-up and look," which is very fitting considering all my work is connected to/stems from pre-verbal perception, along the lines of "Seeing Without Knowing" ("What do I see before knowing what it is that I am looking at?").
I would make those images differently today, but I guess one could say the same thing about any piece one looks at 9 years after it was done.
And besides, the computer I used then had probably less power and definitely a lot less storage space than my current iPhone!
Music informs images as much as images inform music, so this is the second of three variations on those images, the first one is here: vimeo.com/201437175
and here's the third one: vimeo.com/201438936
