Dawn

Dawn is a visual artist and composer. Her work explores the interplay between sound, space, movement and material. 53 of her 57 minutes is a work for 24 differently pitched wine glasses. The composition is based on a 'change ringing' system, as practiced by bell ringers. Following that there is a 4 minute improvisation on guitar seeking a range of harmonics produced by the strings. The final minute is a collection of different location recordings roughly cut together to investigate how the environment acts as a resonator or filter, like the body of an acoustic instrument, shaping the sound passing through it.
