Sounds of Sea, Heart and Sun
February 6 – March 6, 2018
opening February 6, 7 p.m.

How does a sound look like? There arises the idea that the sound may take shape, be translated into the language of images, and speak back to us.

What sound can shake me up? There comes the thought of the emotion of sound, I think of a sound that can send imagination far away, carry it away, dissolve it.

Can form be translated into music? Simple shapes can create rhythm, pulsation, and bright colors –give a sensation of tone. And where else would sound form be located, if not in the air?

In the three works there is a continuous flow of transition and crossing of the fields of sound and visual, passing through the imaginary. The sound is rendered into an object and reflects back in music; it flashes in the air like a light kinetic sculpture, but it can also be heard.
Angel Simitchiev composes using my recordings and with imagination, as if he restores the image of sound in its original musical form, with hypnotic and cosmic changes in the state of the mind.

And maybe there, between the two worlds of sound and image, is the place of the elusive?

The exhibition showcases the following works:

Soundscape, 2016
Reflections of speech in the mirror of sound.
Two pairs of words, spoken and written, have been rendered into two parallel images-objects in space: “good morning” and “good night.”
Moving view, soundscape.

Parallel Sounds, 2017
The sound of Vienna vibrating in the air.
Vienna – seen and heard like a reed along the river, a bird on the edge of the city, a roaring hippo, and a train setting off.
The work was created within the KulturKontakt Artists-in-Residence-Programm 2017, Austria.

Sounds of Sea, Heart and Sun, 2018
A sea of lights and sounds vibrating in the pulse of earth, man and space.

Angel Simitchiev is the composer in all the three works.

The exhibition is supported by the Gaudenz B. Ruf Award.
