Description

This is the fifth sound track in a series of sound files produced as part of PhD thesis, titled 'Intermedia Frottage: visual representation of music & aural representation of image'.

As the tide turns objects washed up by the sea leave impressions in the sand. Sounds have been created from the outlines, or impressions, of these objects, to tell the story of their journeys on the passing tides.

The sound files are in a compressed format, and the full fidelity audio CD is available for loan with the exegesis from Southern Cross University Library (or from the creator). Similarly, the imagery is not available on the website collection, but a DVD or imagery is also available for loan with the exegesis from Southern Cross University Library (or from the creator).

Methodology

With the use of graphic synthesis software, the composer can draw sounds directly on the sound canvas. This means that sounds can be written to as well as read from the image. The image takes on the role of a graphic score, from which multiple readings, or interpretations are possible.
