A collaboration between visual artist, Danica Maier and composer, Martin Scheuregger - Score: Mechanical Asynchronicity takes a single historical lace draft from the Nottingham Lace Archive as the starting point for new live and installation-based visual-musical works. The working process and presentation of Score: Mechanical Asynchronicity sees the fine artist become ‘composer’ and composer become ‘artist’. Their roles move from user – of each other’s discipline knowledge, aesthetic understanding and technique – to author of works that are contingent on their collaboration but can still be identified as belonging to their individual practices. You can navigate this exposition through a series of prompts each focusing on a different aspect or way to engage with the work: Look, Listen, Read, Play, and Watch. Read: offers an opportunity to understand further details about the project including pilot works, experimental development, key events and practical details. Look: will share images of the scores created by Maier and Scheuregger, and the original historical lace draft. Listen: gives you a chance to hear original music box sound pieces as well as Side A and B of the recorded pieces. Play: allows you to ‘play with' the individual tracks allowing you to create a combined piece in various iterations including 1-4 musicians. Watch: includes film documentation from four different concert versions to view.
