'MUSIC FOR THE EYES'

A unique series of sculptures based on musical forms.

Solo (Aria)

  • Asingle linear structure that rises, dips and encircles itself to reach a dramatic climax.

Duet

  • Two similar, though not identical interlinked forms that gently rock when pushed.

Trio

  • Three 3-sided elements that embrace each other in swooping curves.

Quartet

  • Four rectangular, rectilinear forms that interpenetrate each others' spaces without actually touching.

Quintet (Rondo)

  • Five mutually supportive arcs forming a continuous round.

Sextet (Fugue)

  • Six 6-sided double triangular forms of differing size, suggestive of flight and repeating sequences.

'MUSIC FOR THE EYES'

Sponsorship is being actively pursued for this exciting series (see above). 'Music for the Eyes' is a direct translation of these familiar musical forms into a series of three-dimensional sculptural figures drawn in space, using either stainless steel tube or lines of coloured light (neon tube or fibre optic rod), which may be animated by interaction with the viewer.

They may be displayed singly or in groups of two or more, on any scale to suit the location; the connecting theme of musical structures is strong enough for them to be seen in any order - you do not have to see them all at once!

Contacts established with: National Trust and Gateshead Music Centre

At the largest scale big enough to walk inside - they would look magnifcent in open parkland or large public space; The National Trust has already shown an interest in this prospect. At a 6ft high scale in steel or luminous rod (which could include an interactive response such as lighting up individual elements in sequence to show the flow of time through the work), they would be particularly appropriate in such places as Concert Halls, Arts Centres, Galleries etc - Gateshead Music Centre has also shown interest... On a smaller scale (up to 2 ft high) they would be highly collectable 'table top' pieces for musical and sculptural enthusiasts. Contact me if you have any suggestions for funding or sponsorship!
