[AR20] Giant Worms

August 30, 2013

 

ImageGIANT WORMS – Massimo Magee

The Giant Worms project consists of eight snapshots which are designed to be experienced as sound pieces, as images, and as texts.  It is being made available as a mixed mode CD with full-colour printed booklet and disc.  The mixed mode CD contains the eight snapshots as audio tracks which can be played in a CD player, as well as all eight snapshots as bitmap images and pdf files, which can be viewed/read by inserting the CD into a computer.  It is important for me to emphasise that these eight snapshots are simultaneously audio pieces, images and texts, since the three manifestations arise from exactly the same data.  In this way, the files are digital art objects in the truest sense, as it would be impossible to create an analogue equivalent that could be all three things simultaneously.  When you listen to the music, you are also listening to the image and to the text; when you look at the image, you are also looking at the music and the text; when you read the text, you are also reading the music and the image – in their entirety.  

The price is AUD $9 including postage to anywhere in the world.
