Abstract

Feather-Crater is an audiovisual composition (2019; 7:00) by PerMagnus Lindborg, featuring Chan Hing-yan (erhu) and Cheryl Ong (biangu/drums). The musicians performed guided improvisations in studio, and from the recorded material certain sequences were selected by the composer and subjected to edits and transformation. The guqin-like plucked instrument and sheng-like chordal backgrounds were generated with custom syntheses in Max (Cycling 74). The visual material was collected during the same time period in various locations. Like the sonic material, the images start out fairly concrete and are then transformed to achieve a level of post-painterly abstraction which nevertheless preserves clues as to their origin. The piece can be screened in its fixed-media film version, or performed live performance with erhu and biangu musicians, video, and audio backing track.
