music composition for 3D video installation by Rodrigo Facundo
dimensions variable
duration 1’ 39’’


Musical composition for the 3D video installation by Colombian artist Rodrigo Facundo. The work of Facundo reflects on the dialectics between man’s creative spirit and his destructive potential, both inherent elements to human nature. In the music, two sound materials (noisy and pitched), analogous to the two characters in the video, represent this both antagonistic and complementary relationship.

As a response to the three dimensional image, the musical composition is based on sound spatialization. Sounds travel through an imaginary acoustic space, creating discernible musical ideas when approaching one another. 

Both the video and the musical composition are based on line or sound drawing trajectories, which are generated from 3D simulations.
