Edges is a conceptual visual music piece which was based on a poem by the author. A poem on the idea of identity and existence. The poem became the inspiration for the visual material. However, the piece was also a visual exploration of the atmosphere and richness from a number of compositions by the Canadian Composer Barry Truax, from his Digital Soundscapes CD.
The object for exploring the concepts in the poem was the human head. Simple gestures were used to explore both our stillness and the movement in our stillness. Kathleen McGovern was the model for this exploration.
The music became the focus for the process of composing
the visuals over time.
