The string is one of the basic tools for creating music. Simple in assumption and complicated in the diversity of use.
When referring to visual arts, we can build an analogy between the string and the line, because just as the string is the sound source, the line is the source of the image. Taking this parallel as a guiding principle, Lena Czerniawska and Adam Pultz Melbye’ audio-visual installation Strings bridge the experiential divide between the visible and audible world.
The collaboration between Czerniawska and Melbye was initially spawned by their collaboration on Measures, Melbye’s recent solo double bass release. The physical album consists of vacuum sealed broken bass strings with download codes and artwork by Czerniawska, each item being hand made by the two artists.
The exhibition of Strings was featured by a multi double bass performance by Mike Majkowski, Adam Pultz Melbye, Adam Goodwin performing the piece Boolean by Adam Pultz Melbye:
as well as a talk between the artists and open discussion with the audience.
