Repose is a series of worked based on a series of seven colors and explores how context changes perception.

Repose, 2017

— Audiovisual Installation

The installation version of Repose presents a monolithic sound piece, comprised of purely synthetic timbres devoid of traditional compositional elements, accompanied by a projected field of light through fog that continually shifts in color, hue, and saturation.

Repose.Heptaptych, 2017

— Acoustic Panels

Repose.Heptaptych, is fabricated on acoustic absorption panels, each panel representing one of the seven fundamental colors that make the Repose. The acoustic properties of the material serve to dampen the ambient sound of there environment, thus altering the space through the subtraction of soundwaves.

Repose, 2017

— Digital Edition

Repose is part of the Colour Fields collection of works, derived from Yann Novak’s Repose and Scalar Fields projects. The works explores context, atmosphere and time through the use of purely synthesized colours and sounds.

Repose originated as an audiovisual installation which presents a monolithic sound piece comprised of purely synthetic timbres devoid of traditional compositional elements. The sound piece is accompanied by a projected field of light that continually shifts in color, hue, and saturation. Repose is an examination of the inseparability of sound from context, and its effects on our perception of time, space and subjectivity.

— Site-Specific Performance

Repose is a site specific sound and light performance created for Cocky Eek’s SPHÆRÆ. Repose is intended to highlight this unique space through a near gesture-less performance of sound and light. The piece is consist of purely synthesized sound that is nearly void of compositional elements and a 180º projection of pure color. The performance is formed through manipulation of the color, hue and saturation of the projected light.

Repose, 2014

— Digital

Repose was a site specific performance in Cocky Eek’s inflatable performance space, Sphæræ, commissioned by the 2014 AxS Festival in Pasadena, California.

The performance highlighted this unique space through a gesture-less performance of sound and light. The piece is comprised of a purely synthesized sound devoid of traditional compositional elements and was accompanied by 180º projections of pure color.

Repose is presented here in a longer form to take advantage of the digital format.
