Mark Pilkington is a composer and performer of electroacoustic music.
His practice encapsulates both sound and image as a means to extend spatial imaginings between real and virtual space. The coupling of images and sounds within audiovisual media is applied to the composition of acousmatic music, site-specific installation and screen-based works.
For Splice festival he will be screening Moiré which is a fixed audio-visual composition that investigates perceptual correspondences between sound and image. The concept is based on encounters and exchanges between fictional characters within a milieu of audio-visual interference. Digital transformations portray memories, thoughts and feelings of social meaning projected in an audio-visual framework. Creating a living dynamic field that demonstrates how social information is captured and inverted in a continuum of self-expression.
