 One, Two  (2008, rev. 2016)                       single-channel video, stereo

Digitized archive photo, synthesized sound, animation

The image of a boy is split left and right, one side the echo of the other. In the audio, a single claves strike, doubled at the octave, mirrors the visual motif. The video, developing in multiple planes, and the audio, playing in a equal number of voices, express a time object--a moment continuously redefined--unified by its genesis in a single image, a single sound. One, Two is composed in Bogen (arch) form, a musical architecture. The piece begins in unity, develops to maximum complexity at mid-point, then resolves again to unity at the end.
