[SISEA 1990] Artist Statement: Ernest Edmonds — Video Construct

Artist Statement

The piece uses live and electronic music as well as video projection. The structure of the music is closely related to the structure of the (colour) video construct. An  abstract animated video sequence is controlled by, and generated from, a computer system. The first such composition will be performed in Liege in May 1990.

More details of the concepts can be seen in the FISEA and SISEA papers by Edmonds. A piece was composed especially for SISEA and lasts approximately twenty minutes.
