~ 7 audio-visual pieces inspired by the natural world ~


by Nick Chamberlain 

In the June '22 SoundMuse exhibition, composer Nick Chamberlain presented 'Moments of Nature in Music', a large scale audio visual piece.

"...The natural word also inspires my audio-visual work in a more direct, familiar way. Moments Of Nature In Music is a series of seven pieces inspired by such familiar things as rain, wind, flowers and bees, each evoking a fleeting series of moments. The video images sometimes directly illustrate the music and soundscapes, but at other times, the sounds themselves are creating the images in real-time.”

"‘Flowerbee’ is a standout, a piece of music for piano and cello is visualised by a pair of Eidophones – drum-like membranes covered in lycopodium powder which shifts into geometric forms as the music plays."

'Sound for Time's Sake' combines sounds created on unconventional electronic, handmade and antique instruments with recordings taken from the natural world. These are woven together to form a multi-layered soundscape that takes the listener on a journey from the birth of the universe to the dawn of culture.
