Making a Mark

Mainwood, Val

About the work

Based on Ben Nicholson’s painting ‘1932’ Artists and composers have long been influenced by each other, both inspirationally and in the use of multi-media performance. In ‘Making a Mark’ I have endeavoured to create a blurring of the boundaries between the two art forms. The music explores the textures, contours and ambiguities of the painting. From this exploration an artifact, visual and aural, is born.

Technical notes

If the rhythms appear tricky, the important thing to remember is t come in at the first beat of the next bar. As the piece is improvisatory in nature, a few “creative” rhythms will not go amiss!
