Sculpture conclude their Projected Music sequence with an expanded video form in collaboration with Psyché Tropes label founder and filmmaker Steven McInerney. Watch online in its entirety below, or purchase videomedia eternity on ultra-limited Beta SX videotape.
Projected Music (Beta SX edition) is a 60-minute videocassette release of an audiovisual meltdown utilizing 2 x 5-inch Projected Music discs. Sutherland’s camcorders and zoetropes are combined with McInerney’s video hardware while Hayhurst’s multilayered 5-inch grooves are mixed into oblivion. All videocassettes come with digital downloads of Projected Music and Projected Reworks.
Original zoetrope discs and audiovisual work by Sculpture for Electronic at the Design Museum in London from April 2020. These are some of the earliest discs we used in our live performances, dating from around 2010, and were made by glueing paper to vinyl records. Now, as we use so many images during each show, we don’t stick them to a heavy polymeric substance. Reuben Sutherland has probably made more than 500 zoetrope designs, many lost in chaos, though we try to archive them. The designs are intended to be filmed with a video camera (shooting at 25 fps with an extremely fast shutter speed) suspended above the disc which usually rotates at 45 RPM. Some designs are intended to be rotated at different speeds and sometimes a single design contains elements that work at a variety of speeds.
The exhibition first opened at Paris Philharmonie in 2019.
Zoetropic discs and audiovisual work by Sculpture feature in the major new Electro Expo at Philharmonie de Paris, Apr 9 – Aug 11 2019
