Looking Outwards 02: Tina Frank


Tina Frank’s Colterrain

This project is an experimental audiovisual film that literally maps music into colors of vertical bands. “Colterrain, the title of this film, refers to a colourful landscape, a terrain described by lines similar to geographic mapping”

The audio was transmitted through a Synchronator device that translates audio frequencies into RGB spectrum video frequencies.

I admire the concept of translating one perspective into another using color and music. The title, Colterrain might also be either an unintentional or intentional reference to John Coltrane who translates the feeling of what is around us into music, with audible colors and textures in his sound. Listening to Coltrane gives a multi sensational experience through the different use of sonic textures and colors of the notes.
