Bret Battey - Sinus Aestum (2009)

Bret Battey - Sinus Aestum (2009)

Bret Battey is a composer of audio-visual artworks. He uses "custom software and generative techniques to create hybrid sound and image evocations of distinctive ways of being in the world". This work "Sinus Aestum" needs to be seen in high quality visuals and audio. I was lucky to see this work presented in Bath Spa last year. Quite incredible. However, the vimeo excerpt gives you a good idea of the piece. Enjoy.


Sinus Aestum (Luna Series #3) (2009) from Bret Battey on Vimeo.

"Sinus Aestum (Bay of Billows) is a dark lunar plain articulated by threads of white dust, like tips of flowing and silent waves. Drawing from this image, the sound and image composition "Sinus Aestum" presents one sound-synthesis process and nearly 12,000 individual points, which are continually transformed and warped, restrained and released, without cuts, to form compound, multi-dimensional waves of activity moving through unstable states between plateaus of pitch and noise. Mathematical processes are transformed into a contemplation of the continual ebb and flow of human experience." Source: http://vimeo.com/12854049
