JACKSON x PAPER-MUSIC x PERFORMANCE x EXHIBITION
April 16, 2021 - May 8, 2021
iso invites you to the exhibition of Jackson’s “Paper – Music, A Rave In Pictures”, where the visual product of his performance is set for display. The disks made during the performance are exhibited from April 21st to May 1st, unrolling the score of the evening on the large walls of iso amsterdam.
Paper – Music, A Rave In Pictures is a performance by Jackson based on the sonic translation of painted shapes on rotating paper discs. The execution of this performance produces both pictures and minimal music for a live audience. Colored inks generate sound frequencies according to hue, saturation and shapes properties, while black and white are dedicated to rhythmic patterns. The rotation speed of each disc determines how they interact with one another. Painting music, and its deployment over time, aspires to an equilibrium between image and sound through a reformulation of club culture’s traditional staging. In this context, the DJ becomes the painter of images that witness a passage from the tangible to the intangible. The balance between a hand gesture and its live reinterpretation by an artificial vision and sound synthesis algorithm plays with our recognition process of physical reality. Writing the intangible meets a proposal to shift our festive gathering standards and its narrative process.
The performance took place at iso on April 16th, from 18:00 to 21:00
