…..I have started work on Diego Ramirez new Video piece titled “Radish”, an exploration of isolation, Identity crisis and alienation.
I have made the starting point interesting and borrowed a circuit from my friend Ben Kolaitis that plugs into plants and uses the electrical the conductance of the plant/s to generate a signal that is then reproduced by a little synthesiser, i then used my Moog bass synth as a filter and a delay to get some really exotic and beautiful bed sounds to start the composition. I am also referencing Arnold Schoenberg’s Concerto For Piano And Orchestra, Op. 42, Andante as a reference for some interesting piano composition.
I am really looking forward to this one, it will be shown at Seventh gallery in fitzroy starting August 2nd as a quad piece and video installation.
