Photogramming the sound patterns

16mm visual sound patterns

After drawing numerous Visual Sound Patterns these where laser-cut into ‘masks’. In the dark room I used these masks to make photograms. This by putting a stroke of 16mm film on the table and above it the mask. Then lit a torch above it, or in this case a DIY led-strip-lamp, and develop the film.

Only after this process I was able to take the pieces of film to my studio and listen to what kind of sounds I created, on my strangly build Visual Sound Patterns device I will show on the 4th and 5th of November at the “Back To The Furture” Filmwerkplaats-festival. Come and listen!
