Audio CD + data CD. Berlin-based Frank Bretschneider is a musician, composer and video artist who co-founded the Raster-Noton label in 1996. EXP is a music-visual work based on the idea that fine art should attain the abstract purity of music. An attempt to assimilate the qualities found in music -- including movement, rhythm, tempo, mood, intensity and compositional structure -- within visual phenomena. The music for the project was composed of specific generated and selected waveforms, feedbacks, impulses, clicks, the sound of mechanics, electricity, magnetism, light and other radiation. In addition, since the animation is mainly driven by sound frequency and intensity, the sonic quality of these sounds makes it possible to obtain an optimal effect on the graphics motion. In combination with several other ways of controlling the animation -- from MIDI programming to applying motion curves -- the visualization represents an exact reproduction of the audible occurrences. As a consequence, the computed images often attain an unexpected beauty, from simple geometrical patterns to extraordinarily complex forms. The data CD is an 18-minute video generated from the realtime live visualization of EXP.
