Improvisation

At the heart of music is improvisation. Improvisation in performance creating sound images.
It is extended in meaningful ways when two are contributing….interaction, spontaeneously developing sonic light and shade, freely, dynamically articulating the language of the piano, and exploring all possible textures of the moment. Skill, temperament, openess, listening, ebbing and flowing to shape time and space. Noise, silence, gesture, abstraction, physically approaching an intention, affirming the presence of sound, shifting restlessly, relentlessly through the crenilations of possibilites. A sound, a silence, a pitch, a rhythm, wood, felt and strings, forming a strange subliminal sojourn in a world of aural tectonics. We pause, we play and we live though a moment inside the energy of sound. We leave a trace in time, a whisper in the ear of now.

Amerta Art Patio

 A Film by Virginia Aurora Scott
 https://vimeo.com/275593986

When Sarah Hyde, my Amerta Movement tutor, first suggested a project to me in October 2016, my default was to think piano. But what was to emerge was an art project with camera work, which I had already been contributing to our movement group sessions.
6 of my abstract canvases inspired by my musical improvisation work were set free in my small town garden patio movement space, to be in nature and ambient sound.
This film has been compiled from the many images and films recorded since that time to the present day, witnessing the journey so far.
