Constelaciones started as a project ment to show the correspondences between details on the human body surface and celestial or astronomical maps. With the obtained visual materials, I experimented different ways to "translate" those into sounds. On this basis, the project has been changing course until it has taken a mediating position between the visual and the audible.
The current goal of this project is to deepen the analogies between visual arts and western classical music:
- Noting the differences and similarities among the images generated by the sounds of the twenty four tonalities. (Photographies)
- From the opposite point of view, creating video-art works where the visual part is the main character, and studying the relationships between image and sound afterwards. (Video)
- Looking for possible relationships between these images and the ones generated by a previously composed music. That means, investigating whether there are ways to recognize harmonic progressions in a visual way.
Can you guess the main tonality by looking at the photographies below?
