Electroacoustic Drawing: Davy Sumner

Exhibition Website

Mar 4 2017 - Apr 20 2017

Electroacoustic Drawing is an audiovisual performance for three hand-wired drawing mechanisms. DC motors spin markers across a 14-foot canvas, resulting in thick strokes, irregular geometric shapes, and splatters. The internal gearings of the motors and the canvas itself are amplified and mixed in real-time. By manipulating the speed and polarity of the motors, both the drawing and audio composition are imprinted with the semblance of each other.
