U.K.-based visual artist Quayola teams up with Hong Kong-based music label NLS records on a limited edition run of collectible vinyl records featuring musical scores from his Strata series. Music has always been a critical component in Quayola's audiovisual installations and digital film compositions, resulting in collaborations with world-renown electronic musicians like Mira Calix, Autobam, Plaid and Matthias Kispert. As a sort of artistic tribute to the role music plays in animating, activating and completing the visual works, this vinyl project sees the video works' audio scores--the most intangible element of these already ephemeral, digital works--transformed into a traditional, analog, archival format.
Inspired by the invisible geometries and topologies contained within iconic works of classical painting and architecture, the Strata films are a collision of old and new aesthetics. While sound and imagery were conceived to work in perfect harmony, the soundscapes are beautiful and evocative in their own right. Even so, they still carry traces of their visual counterparts.
"Like a landscape painter who is inspired by a specific image or place, these pieces of music carry the essence of the video works, as they were generated accordingly," notes Quayola.
