In this piece, Gawronski used a photograph of trees from a forest outside Lisbon, Portugal to create the scale. Trees that were close represented low notes and trees that were in the distance represented high notes. The distance between the trees represented the length of time the note would be carried.
He then took samples of Lisbon Fado singer Amalia Rodrigues' work and plugged these samples into the scale to create the actual sounds.
The video was created based on a reductivist approach and was filmed at the Zaratan Arte Contemporanea artist-run gallery in Lisbon, Portugal.
The three elements of approach to the video give it a simplistic description of the natural art scene in Lisbon, and is very local in nature.
This represents my first time doing a collaborative serious piece, and it was interesting how it all played out. I didn't sit down to work collaboratively with him. It just happened, and that's what happens when you spend time with other artists. Eventually simple conversation turns collaborative art.
