Interval and Instance: Time and focus in the films of Eric Lucey

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


Interval and Instance is a work for live cinema by composer Jules Rawlinson exploring time and focus in archival material from the pioneering scientific filmmaker Eric Lucey adding a solo live electronic score and sound design. The performance examines speed, motion and scale in film and sound. The soundtrack 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 immersive audio-visual experience that incorporates spectralism, minimalism, modular synthesis and granular detail that support and draw attention to the visual character of the films.
