Black Noise White Silence (Zwarte Ruis Witte Stilte)
Computer generated sound and image.
Zwarte Ruis Witte Stilte (Black Noise White Silence) is a compact, computer-generated audiovisual work which makes use of minimal resources to demonstrate the impact possible with digital media. The tight synchronization of video and audio is the dominant source of tension in this piece - the visual activity is mapped explicitly pixel-per-pixel to the audio track, resulting in an intense multi-sensoral experience for the viewer. It was inspired by the experimental video works of computer graphics pioneers such as Lillian Schwartz and John Whitney. The use of fractal-generated source material gives this work an organic quality, while its compact form provides a sense of immediacy and contiguity.
Black Noise White Silence has been released on the 12K/Line041 label.
