I composed this work around a non-tonal concept of acoustic instruments, using extended techniques that were later also digitally effected using various signal processing plug-ins. I aimed to render physical gestures seen on screen as ‘alive’ through ideas of MSI. Beyond this, I regarded the screen’s frame itself as a complete field of visual gesture with my attention not only directed to characters’ gestures, and the visually- conveyed narrative, but also to the filmic medium itself, with the old-stock film’s defects, as well as other, textural, non-human visual details within the frame.
