Seco Live has provided operational support to the Paseo for 2019 in order to further our mission of supporting Arts and Culture in rural northern New Mexico. Through our sponsorship we will be directly supporting Santa Fe artists Alison Johnson and Thomas Vause in presenting their installation, Visual Audio.
(From paseoproject.org) Visual Audio: Visual Audio is an interactive audio-visual projection. Audience members of all ages can create vector art using their voices. The visual output is manipulated through the amplitude and tone of the audio input in real time. A visual controller further allows the user to manipulate different visual effects, thresholds, as well as screen capturing images for later review. Inspired by the Wassily Kandinsky quote, “Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, and the soul is the piano with many strings.” Visual Audio is intended to be therapeutic, shifting the traditional connection between the aural and the visual. Each interaction is unique. The visuals, controlled by their audio, take audience members on a unique and abstract visual journey of their voice.
We invite you to interact with their installation at this year’s Paseo on September 13 and 14, 2019 to create your own Visual Audio art experience.
