‘Script Geometry is a project that approaches natural audio environments as complex, connected ensembles, curiously close to electronic music to the human ear. Script Geometry presents a sensitive and engaging experience of unexpected acoustic phenomena, confirming the subjectivity of the practice of the microphone as a vehicle of a form of experimental music.’
Thomas Tilly is a French musician whose principle instrument is a microphone. For twelve years he has been composing, inventing sound art installations and teaching. His work has been presented in more than 15 countries. Tilly finds inspiration in different environmental analysis protocols and how they have impact on the notion of listening. This work presents field recordings as a sum of data that guide the creative process and implicate the microphone as a compositional tool, complete on its own.
‘Approaching the forest as if were a city, a construct, an ensemble of strata and vertical heights where signals answer, contrast and ignore each other.Variations occur, fullness and emptiness are created according to the weather and the peak and off-preak hours. This density that language can’t define presents a challenge for the ear, and from this density surfaces, frm time to time, certain analogies to a modern sound environment.
Cultural leads fraw our experience of these natural acoustic phenomenin towards the domain of technology : “it sounds like… it’s like..
‘The timbres ? The sound structures ? There exists something in a tropical forest that sounds like and plays within the realms of electronics, music and electronics noise ; something characteristic of an era long before the birth of biotopes that form this forest and create this sound.
Script geometry comes from this idea and the desire to work with density, in an attempt to extract forms that characterize these analogies. Taking these sounds out of their context and rearranging them as we would patch cables on a synthesizer ; weaving these strata and vertica heights into a different pattern by using the signals from the forest as if they were synthetic sounds : dissecting this spectrum and looking for something that can only be revealed through listening, this is the essence of the project’ – Thomas Tilly
