WAITING TO TURN INTO PUZZLES
Waiting to Turn into Puzzles is a collaboration between film artist Louise Curham and composer David Young. Shot in Yokohama Japan, this 45 minute hand-processed super 8 film/music work forms the basis of the musical scores. The inter-medial nature of the work creates a hovering connectedness between image and sound, shifting the boundaries between the artforms. Similarly the graphic music notation allows a certain freedom and spontaneity in the performance of the music which accompanies the film, whilst remaining precisely structured.
As part of the opening of Waiting to Turn Into Puzzles installation in Cube 37, an excerpt of the work was performed by Melbourne-based Quiver Ensemble. Quiver consists of a group of highly focused young musicians who are passionate about contemporary art music, experimental improvisation and interdisciplinary practice. The four core players are also co-directors who share a dedication to innovative programming and close composer-performer collaboration.
