Daily Report

A Short Report on the Past and Upcoming Events

Introduction

I tried to choose the videos in which the artist contemplated sound and image in different ways. There, music, or sound, was not being used as an accompaniment. Music and image act as equals and the image makes it possible to understand the importance of the music during the video.
This style of making videos could be consciously or not. It was not important for my selection.

Sonata II from Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano (John Cage)

Who dares to go unfamiliar ways and to visit unfamiliar places can find treasures that point to the future.

“Like shells on the beach” John Cage has found his sounds. For his work “Sonatas and Interludes” he fixed bolts, screws and rubber between the strings of his grand piano. This is how he created the tender, gamelan-like sounds he used to compose this piece of music. Everywhere are things waiting to be found, if you only dare to go unfamiliar paths and visit unfamiliar places. Old houses with overgrown entrances, fragile stairs, dusty attics. Whoever dares to search here will find unexpected treasures with which a futuric soundexperience can be produced on a traditional concert grand.

Felony

My work deals with concepts and artist researches, not only the science behind it, but I show a reflection of issues from it. To be specific, I have this fascination for interval humanized nature. In other words, my art is centered on principles of perception. It is about the way spectators perceive my selective perception. To this end, I use the elements of nature or time as a comparison with our contemporary lives. I bring multidimensional installations into a space and surround the viewer with my artworks, which mostly consist of multimedia installations including objects, light, video, sound and their individual components. Accordingly, in my room-installations, I create an interchange in order to convey my notion. Thereby, I let the viewer spatially experience my concepts in a new reality, so that they experience art through novel means.

“We were condemned to natural selection

Compulsion to life is our only holiness

An interval between birth and death”

En Brèche (2017)

In his composition “And Life is Word-to-Word Breathing”, Ali Gorji has divided a text by Shirin Nowrousian into individual syllables. The individual phonemes used are taken from different languages, but they elude any semantic binding and develop their own physical and thus musical expression in the context of this linguistic expressionlessness. The short film shows a visual interpretation of this composition.
