Descrip­tion

Rauschen is a pro­ject on trans­co­ding music and sound to pic­tures. I chose a tech­ni­que wich nor­mally is used to share files ille­gally. Taking a music file and chan­ging it’s suf­fix from .mp3 to .raw, I could open it with Pho­to­shop and dis­co­ver a visua­li­zed form of music.

This pro­cess is a very direct form of visua­li­zing sound, resul­ting in a very unso­phisti­ca­ted and clear pic­ture. These noisy pic­tures have dif­fe­rent struc­tures like waves and some­ti­mes they even get opti­cally bro­ken by a black bar. This visua­liza­tion of music was the base to design an exhibition.

In order to give the viewer some his­to­ri­cal back­ground, I addi­tio­nally deci­ded to design a book on the history of nota­tion sys­tems. It inclu­des an over­view of the dif­fe­rent ways of nota­tion sys­tems, star­ting with anci­ent hand signs from Egypt and moving fur­ther to modern artistic ways of nota­ting music.

The book is divi­ded in two parts: The first deals with the history of nota­tion sys­tems. The second is an exhi­bi­tion cata­lo­gue showing the art­works on dis­play. For the exhi­bi­tion I addi­tio­nally deve­l­o­ped a sound-installation with exam­ples for dif­fe­rent kinds of noise-pictures.

I also desi­gned an exhi­bi­tion. In order to pro­mote the exhi­bi­tion I desi­gned a micro­site play­ing the music visua­li­zed on site. The web­site also gives you some his­to­ri­cal facts about music notation.

Ano­ther pro­mo­tion I crea­ted where public sound instal­la­ti­ons. These instal­la­ti­ons worked with moni­tors pla­ced in public spaces which were con­nec­ted to micro­pho­nes. The micro­pho­nes record the sound around them and auto­ma­ti­cally trans­codes these records into noise pictures.

Being born in Vienna I stu­died gra­phic, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and type design there. Having worked as Gra­phic desi­gner and artist ever since, I believe in a mul­ti­fa­ce­ted and pas­sio­nate method of ope­ra­ting. I always try to ques­tion cur­rent com­mu­ni­ca­tion methods and to achieve a new and uncon­ven­tio­nal form of expres­sion in my work.
