Serenade Of The Woods

Lisa Chang Lee (Video & Audio Programming by; in Collaboration with Sound Artist James Wilkie)

Using the objectivity of algorithms to examine and challenge the binary opposition between technology and nature.

In a sense of uniformity (QI WU theory,  Chuangtsu).  Through the data analysis the rhythm of plants in breeze is read then transformed into music scores. Applied with Olivier Messiaen' s scale inspired by oriental music and birds song, the algorithm processes movements of plants swaying in the breeze recorded from everyday life. Each plant is given a musical instrument that corresponds to its synesthetic form. Eventually, musical scores written by nature are played by human as live performance and audiovisual installation.
