Originally from Singapore, Lynette has recently completed a Master of Arts in Music Production, before beginning her Ph.D in Audiovisual Composition under the supervision of Dr. Federico Reuben at the University of York (UK) in 2016. With a diverse music technology background, she is currently interested in exploring the integration of technology and musicians through the creation of audiovisual compositions – examining the relationships between digital and physical elements, as well as the visual and auditory.
A modular wall installation, consisted of 3 wooden panels and built-in mini speakers, broadcasting a score.
Referencing pareidolia, a psychological phenomenon that causes some people to see or hear a vague or random image or sound as something significant, the subject matter in the wooden sculptures is open to interpretation to each viewer. Some see mountains, others see faces, letters or kids toys. The sound score provides a possible rendition to depicted elements. Can you decipher human speech, a reverberating bridge, a forest, or maybe winds from a surface of Mars? The abstract tapestry of sounds lasts for 38 min
The project is akin to a Rorschach test, harmonizing myriads of perspectives and connotations, along with providing a unique platform for incorporating both physical senses and imagination in an observer.
