A collaboration of art & sound
by Artist Catherine Greenwood & Composer Matt Gooderson.
‘WaveScapes’ began as an auditory response to the visual stimulus of Catherine Greenwood's ‘Mobius Wave’ etching and a triptych of 3 wavescape etched silk banners. The music was created by Matt Gooderson using modular synthesis, graphic scores from the etching and field recording including sampled notes from Catherine's hierloom piano, wooden flutes and whistles collection.
Covid-19 lockdown meant that all of the compositions were written very early in the morning, the sounds and art evoke light and hope and emotional response to longing for the sea. Möbius Wave etching and other artwork from the wavescape series has been used as the album cover for the music release available for sale as CD, cassette and vinyl and free digital download.
'Wavescapes' has also evolved as an installation fusing art and sound dance. Waves of Tranquillity video included with choreography and dance by Tilliana Greenwood response to Wavescape track IV. A live performance has been choreographed for this created of this work which could also be recorded and projected installation of any or all of its components.
‘Waves of Tranquility’ video is central to a set of 9 tiles that create 'Wavescape Memory Box'; this is an interactive audio visual soundscape that was created as a presentation of this installation for a digital audience for the ‘Wilderness For The Mind online Exhibition’ in June 2020 Wilderness Art Collective’s Summer programme.
