Accross "Sonic Landscape" serie, Mauren Brodbeck explores the passioning and intriguing relation between music/sound and image/rythm.
This relation is also at the heart of his sonic work entitled "Path to heaven" she was commissioned for the renowned Biennal of Art currently being held in Lyon (France).
"What kind of landscape can music have? Can music be interpreted as a new form of landscape? How to explore a very intimate world? From these questions I have worked with David Hodgetts, founder of "Demain La Lune", who has created a software program capable of reading music and translating it into 3d landscapes. The magic works for me from the first glance: the bass and high tones of a piece of music redefine the lines and contours of my universe to be explored with all the senses. Without forgetting the beat, this beat, rhythm and tempo that outline the structure of a landscape (plains, hills, valleys) and the meaning of words that modulate it landscape, giving it its softness or its jagged edges.
I compose music and write songs as part of my practice. The words and notes fall from my lips, bouncing on urban landscapes that have defined my work since the start. Inspired largely by the discovery of my own universe and the space explorers who walked on the moon and studied the planet Mars, I cross the depths of my own soundscapes with my eyes open wide like flying saucers. With camera in hand, I wander like a tourist along this river of music and images. I admit to often feeling like an foreigner on this enormous planet called "Earth". From my belonging or non-belonging to this world that seems often so distant, I have created a parallel world, a universe of vibrant soundscapes, my personal landscapes. Between mounds and crevices, a particular place becomes a pretext, it forms and transmutes in my hands. I combine different materials to give a different relief to these timeless lunar landscapes, like toy theatre. These are paper scenes, with pieces of cloth, denim, polystyrene or gold lamé found online."
