Grid & Sound
30 August 2019
Santi Lawrachawee, Curator
For Graphic designer, ”Grid” is an invisible yet essential structural framework that use to organize and create graphical elements. Nonetheless, these structures can be hindrances, restraining the creator from their path of freedom. Many artists have attempted to deconstruct and reconstruct the form, in hope of breaking through the barrier of lines and suppression of grids. The grid, might not appear as a series of intersecting lines, but often, we are limited only by our belief, background and attitude.
The experiment today aims to inspire participants of the various approaches we can capture our familiar sounds onto an unconventional set of musical staves. What is lost and obtained from these new approaches is yet to be defined. But if we believe that when two lines crossed, it will always create an intersection: a starting point for the new line(s).
