A Sounding

A sounding is a visual monument for sound. To create a sounding, movements of the performer are translated into sound and image with the help of an infrared camera and an infrared pen. The performer can draw music upon an imaginary canvas (or a real one). When the sound has faded away we are left with a sounding representing the history of the performance.
