Experimental: Dyskograf – drawing a music sequence

October 25, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

DYSKOGRAF is a graphic disk reader.  Each disc is created by visitors to the installation by way of felt tip pens provided for their use.  The mechanism then reads the disk, translating the drawing into a musical sequence.

The dematerialisation of the props having led to an ignorance of the principles of recording and reading music, this installation leads to the rediscovery of a perceptible contact with recorded music and by this means, to the deduction of how it works.

The installation is above all a tool, which allows the creation of musical sequences in an intuitive way.  The notion of a loop, closely linked to electronic music, is represented here by the cycle of the disk.  The disk passes indefinitely in front of a camera fixed onto an arm.  This substitution for the needle converts the drawing into sound by way of a specific application program  (software).  Through this system, the sequential ordering of music is learnt in a playful way, at the same time creating a unique object, souvenir of the musical composition.

The numeric world is a world of binary choice.  The object of DYSKOGRAF is to give room again for accidents in numeric creation, accidents that often favour creativity.
