A triptych of synaesthetic impressions of an evening at a Russian choir performance.

The attempt to relive the experience led to the experimentation of a method of making that would allow me to transcribe the vocal performance visually. As someone who is involved in the creation of a performance, the reinterpretation of one art form – in this instance singing – to another, opens up a new way of creating work. Materiality and colour play an important role in my work, but I am drawn to the simplicity of using one material, in monochrome, to focus on the sense of volume and space that I experienced.
