Audio-Visual artist Oliver Jennings creates moving image and sound in unconventional ways, whether it be generating visuals by using architectural 3D modelling software, creating animation or collecting frequencies running through suspension bridges with contact mics to use as a soundtrack to a film.
His practice is concerned with looking for new approaches to generating moving image and sound, with particular interests in revealing hidden natural structures, soundscapes and pattern within unexpected and everyday objects.
Olivers most recent work was the award winning Bio-Symphony: Music of the Plants installation at this years RHS Chelsea Flower Show in which he used a device to read Bio-Feedback in plant life and convert the readings into midi sound, creating a real-time and interactive musical interpretation of what was going on inside the plants and how they respond to their environment and those around them.
Olivers commissions include:
Akkord - Folded Edge (music video released on Houndstooth, Oliver is currently translating this into live visuals for an upcoming tour)
Synkro - Recognition (music video using microscopic footage)
Mixmag Lab Visuals for Craig Richards & Calibre
Live Visuals for Ron Morelli of L.I.E.S Records
Every Object has a Spirit - an exploration into revealing hidden sound from unexpected objects, from coffee percolators to giant river spanning suspension bridges. Primarily concerned with exploring and finding ways of generating hidden natural structures and patterns whether it be playing low frequencies through liquids in speakers to generate cymatic structures or using electrodes and polygraph machines to generate bio-feedback from plants and converting it into MIDI sound.
