Monomatic Artist Talk
Tuesday 29th November 2011, 6pm – Computer Arts Society
Room 212 at Ravensbourne College of Art
Greenwich Peninsula just by the O2 Dome at North Greenwich tube
Nick Rothwell and Lewis Sykes will present their joint art project – Monomatic – introducing their collaborative body of work and drawing out some of the interpretative, creative and technical challenges they’ve faced along the way.
Monomatic is a collaboration, experimental playground and halfway house between the work of Nick Rothwell – composer, performer, software architect, programmer and sound designer – and Lewis Sykes – musician, interaction designer, experimental visualist, digital media producer and curator. They explore sound and interaction through physical works that investigate rich and sonorous musical traditions, such as PEAL: A Virtual Campanile – an installation which models the layout and operation of a traditional church bell tower – and the Modular Music Box – a reinterpretation of the familiar 19th century clockwork musical instrument.
