Salton Sea Revisited 5m Envelope
Salton Sea Revisited 5m Envelope from Xárene on Vimeo.
Drawing inspiration from Jean-Claude Risset's Sud and Luc Ferrari's Presque Rien N°1, Le Lever Du Jour Au Bord La Mer, the piece begins with a dialog between the environment: the waves, the bleached barnacle beach, the train, the birds. The envelope of the composition follows the envelope of the aural activity of the day and the patterns of the birds which tend to be noisiest at dawn and dusk with a calm in mid-day.
The video was shot between 6 and 9am on 6 March 2012. The final version will be dawn to dusk with a 24-hour epic to follow.
