LATE CAPITALISM – Video-score for Improvisation
Manu Falleiros | 2019
Globalization, hyperconsumption, postmodernity, end of history, plastic values.
The video-score was developed to be read according to pre-established parameters of colors and position of action on the screen. The colors are divided into 3 groups that determine the morphology of the sound to be performed, while the position of the action in the quadrants of the screen controls the density and dynamics. The rhythm is given by the cuts and alternations of the images. This indications was developed in order to avoid the tendency to sound effects and to take advantage of the endoconceptual parameters that involve improvised creation. This music is not rehearsed.
