“Every Sound Is a Form of Time II” (2020)
These new visual music scores are inspired by Benoît Mandelbrot’s article “How Long Is the Coast of Britain?”, which was one of its first approaches to his most known creation: the fractals. They are also a potential script for a future concert, similar to the one that was performed during the XII Bienal de La Habana by a Cuban pianist Aldo López-Gavilán. They are like sonic essays proposing a new way to listen to nature, to ourselves, to the Universe. As composer Hugo von Dalberg once said, “all beings are tones of the universal symphony”. Although our most familiar reference regarding art and sound is John Cage and Fluxus, it was since 1910 when these intersections started, with the Russian avant-garde artists who were also in close dialogue with science. They called it Visual Music or Graphic Sound.
