“Music for your eyes and ears. Based on a natural phenomena, brought to life using leading technology – KIMA paints music in light on the incredible architecture of the Union Chapel. In collaboration with contemporary music’s foremost talents, Analema Group and the Organ Project present a unique audio-visual performance, centred around the Henry Willis Organ (1877). KIMA at the Union Chapel offers an entirely new way to experience music.
KIMA – ‘wave’ in ancient Greek – interprets music as interplay of light and form, an artistic quest for a new reading of music. The project enables collaborative participation in the process of music making and listening, investigating visual properties of sound.
The project is unique in creating an experience for both musicians and audience alike to feel and see music, to learn about its inner relationship through visual geometric patterns. Claire M. Singer, Joby Burgess, Laura Moody, Robert Ames & Emily Burn explore visual representations of music in Analema Group’s new creation centred around the Henry Willis Organ.
KIMA is a multi-layered, real-time, interactive art piece – based on mathematical equations derived from the physical world around us. Analema Group builds on early sound representation experiments by Skriabin, Kandinsky, Fischinger, Whitney, and other artists – creating a visual exploration of sound as a synaesthetic and physical phenomenon. In collaboration between visual and performing artists, we explore how motion, sound, symmetry and colour interact.
