Context, #1

Context, #1 [Demo] from Benjamin O'Brien on Vimeo.

"“Context, #1” is a work for animated notation, which I began during my 2016 residency at OMI International Arts Center. Inspired by lengthy discussions with Canadian saxophonist and composer Daniel Pencer about all things "Cobra," acoustics and psychophysics, and ping pong, I was inspired to write a structured improvisation that plays with some of the issues of representation, interpretation, and, of course, listening. Although fixed to a predetermined length of time, the colors, scales, and forms and their positions are indeterminate, yielding different realisations. The images were created using the open-source programming language Processing." (text from Vimeo page below)
