Composer and filmmaker Mark Lyken interprets the forefather of Electronic Art, Ben F Laposky’s pioneering “Oscillon” Electronic Abstractions. Working in collaboration with Sanford Museum, Iowa this Cryptic commission for Sonica 2015 merges Lyken’s sonic responses and visualisations with Laposky’s groundbreaking 1950s art works.

"An entirely new world of continual formal flux...visceral sublimity” The Cusp

Responding to a selection of six strikingly different photographic works capturing complex, rhythmic waveforms, not only are Laposky’s images a visual inspiration for Lyken’s compositions but the original process behind the creation of the artworks has been utilised to generate the accompanying visuals for the performance.
