SeeSaw: a 29 minute audiovisual album, second in a triptych of compositions/mixes released exclusively on Sedition. As with last year's Folly, SeeSaw is designed to be dipped in and out of visually over repeated viewings - to be seen rather than watched. You see, you saw. The perfect loop is both and neither. Disappearance and re-emergence - durationless.
Created within Resolume, the live performance audiovisual software, audio responsive patterns of dots and vapour form distant hills, salt flats and light spheres. Texture is mixed with vista, abstract landscapes appear and reappear, concurrence and sequence invert: multiple melodic elements co-exist, but discreet from one another; segues as significant as motifs.
"Seesaw, or its variant see-saw, is a direct Anglicisation of the French ci-ça, meaning literally, this-that, seemingly attributable to the back-and-forth motion for which a seesaw is known. The term may also be attributable to the repetitive motion of a saw. It may have its origins in a combination of "scie" – the French word for "saw" with the Anglo-Saxon term "saw". Thus "scie-saw" became "see-saw". Another possibility, is the more obvious situation of the apparent appearance, disappearance, and re-emergence of the person, seated opposite one's position, as they, seemingly, "rise" and "fall", against a changing, oscillating background - therefore: "I see you", followed by, "I saw you".
