C.T.SOUND TLV-LINZ is a digital homage to the analogical musical box. Instead of converting notes into material and form in order to produce sound, an image is converted into MIDI language, and then played by sound-producing software. In this way, an image becomes a calculated grid of pixels, and, in turn, each one of the pixels affects both the musical notes produced and their duration.
In this installation the panoramic view of the cities of Linz and Tel Aviv are displayed and “played” as their images are scanned through time. By exposing the power of translation enabled by new technologies, the work reflects upon the interpretative aspect included in the automated act, while exploring a new kinesthetic order and a new way of “feeling” a space.
