“Drawing Music”. Lecture at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, London. Steam Symposium. The Big DrawJun 06 2020 ·1
In 2016 I was invited to participate in the Big Draw Steam Symposium to make a presentation about the role that drawing played in my art practice. At the time I was in New Zealand, so I had to make a video presentation that was projected in the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, London. I think it’s a very good summary of the essence of my latest synaesthetic videos so that’s why I have decided to post it.
Drawing has a vital role in my art. It defines the core structure and compositional rhythm of my works. And, by drawing digitally, I can drive the visual motion of the sounds and organic evolution of my synaesthetic videos. It’s the most immediate bridge between my soul and my art.
In the task of visualising music, drawing is an essential part of my artistic process. I sketch first in pencil the flow of notes over time, or draw three-dimensional branches to build environments for the music. In my latest works, I literally create music color on real time by drawing on a virtual sky.1
I am so happy to participate in theThe 2016 Big Draw Festival, held this September 22nd 2016 at The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, UK, where I will be exhibiting my video “Visus Sonitus I” and also my lecture at the Winner’s Gala of the Lumen Prize 20151
My video, “Visus Sonitus I”, based on Einojuhani’s Rautavaara’s “Concerto for birds and orchestra, I movement”, seen at the background of the photo and in 3D with virtual reality. Exhibited in New York last December 8th to 10th 2015, at the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway as part of the Lumen Prize Finalists Global Tour

Theatre of colour and movement, is a collaborative project made in Toi Poneke Art Centre betweeen Beata Kozlowska and I. Our collaboration revolves around the concept of interdependence as we are showing how two artists can fully blend0
I am so devastated to know about Einojuhani Rautavaara’s death…
My admiration for Einojuhani will always be alive, I will be eternally grateful for having had the chance to meet him, it will remain one of the most important moments of my life. As I have always felt our arts are vibrating by the same wavelength.
His Music will always exist inspiring and uplifting souls of present and future generations and my drive to honour his Art in a visual way has never been stronger. The second and third movement of “Cantus Arcticus” will have their visual equivalent.
It’s official, I am one of the 25 finalists of the Lumen Prize 2015. Yesterday it was announced in Vancouver, at International Simposium of Electronic Art (ISEA). That means, my video “Visus Sonitus I” will be shown in a year global tour exhibition in Shangai, New York, London and Wales and I opt for the winner’s prize at the end of September.0
