Op.1 of 4 from The Visual Music Project Stage 3.

"A copy of the complete original work, released in Wellington (2008), that asserts itself as the first example of a fully mature musical form addressing the human eye rather than the human ear. Tracing origins back to the German/Russian Blaue Reiter group (Klee, Miro, Kandinski) who thought of their work as 'visual music' at the beginning of the last century (1898-1910). These four pieces are the outcome of the artists long pedigree of engagement with finding-out-by-doing projects in his studio and around the landscape and his collaboration with video synthesizer and computer operators in their work places.

Sound optional but recommend play silent, since the work is for the eye, not the ear."
