Can music give meaning to complex scientific concepts? Can data become art? This project explores the fluid relationship between art, nature and technology through a cross disciplinary synthesis of music, imagery and satellite data.
At the heart of the programme lies nature- inspired music for piano solo by contemporary women composers from Norway and Belarus (Olga’s native country), framed by sublime pieces by Bach, Debussy and Scriabin. The musical journey develops in synergy with artistically interpreted satellite images showing magnificent natural phenomena in dazzling colours.
Enveloped by evocative music, which ranges in its expressive palette from dream-like purity to violent intensity, the data-based imagery provokes a powerful emotional response through the use of shapes, colours and gestural marks - akin to the principles of abstract art.
The title ‘Red, Green, Blue’ refers to the most common pigments found in nature and to the way computer screens combine the three wavelengths (RGB) to transform black & white space photography into colour.
