Brigid Burke, Independent Artist,
Based on the transformation of old buildings and sounds that are deconstructed into sounds and interwoven rhythms that depict a race against time and reaching the finishing line. Computer generated sounds have been mixed with clarinet, glass, traffic and air to create this energetic and pulse driven work. The visuals transport the viewer with snapshots of both degenerated line drawings of the buildings; that are fractured and contribute an ever-changing landscape of urban living.
