Date: Friday 21 October from 19:00pm @ Dumfries Music Conference
- Cryptic presents Oscillon Response: Mark Lyken - audiovisual responses to Ben F. Laposky’s groundbreaking 1950s art works.
Composer and Filmmaker Mark Lyken interprets the forefather of Electronic Art, Ben F Laposky’s groundbreaking 1950’s “Oscillon” art works.
Responding to a selection of six strikingly different photographic works capturing complex, rhythmic waveforms, not only are Laposky’s images a visual inspiration for Lyken’s compositions but the original process behind the creation of the artworks has been utilised to generate the short films that accompany the performance.
