Gallery Night and Day was last Friday night and Saturday and we were excited to be a part of the festivities!
At our Walkers Point Studios, we hosted Bass Structures: The Mark of Sound and then an after-party where Bass Structures collaborated with the DJs of 88Nine to see what their sounds look like in a multidimensional DJ Battle! Check out the photos below:
A collaborative body of work between artists Emmanuel Fritz and Collin Schipper. Bass Structures uses sound to arrange paint into geometric and/or fractal-like patterns. This happens in both the pigments and the 3-dimensional space that the paint occupies.
The patterns are subject to several factors. The note/frequency that is pulsing through the system reacts uniquely to the types of materials used in the process. The chemical make up of the paint and surface, the shape of that surface, as well as environmental factors of temperature/humidity/etc… all have a part in the equation that makes the piece what it is.
Started as an observational exploration of the effects of sound on materials, this body of work is based on research surrounding cymatics. They have made the decision to keep a portion of their portfolio dedicated to this observation. However, they have also begun to go beyond observing/recording the effect of a single note over time.
They create experimental music using frequency generated sounds, instrumental sculptures, and self programed synths; as well as collaborations with other musicians and sound artists, to observe what their sounds look like.
