Interval and Instance: Dialogues Festival Multichannel Multiscreen Installation

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


Interval and Instance is an installation by audiovisual artist Jules Rawlinson exploring archival visual material from the pioneering scientific filmmaker Eric Lucey, adding sound design and composition that reflects on and responds to Lucey’s studies.

While the work is non-narrative, the clips have been assembled to provide moments of continuity and contrast. The sound design and composition makes use of extensive layering, time-stretching and time-compression, extreme pitch-shifting, physical modelling and frequency carving to create unexpected points of audition which offers audiences a detailed and engaging audio-visual experience that incorporates spectralism, minimalist repetition and granular detail.

The work was originally conceived as a live performance for the Edinburgh International Film Festival, and has been reworked for Dialogues for mutable multiscreen and multichannel presentation.
