Pop Music, 2014, HD Video, audio, duration: 2’ 33”.
Pop Music uses audio-visual recordings of sparkling wine and champagne bottles opening or popping at various locations to compose music. Through editing process Marynowsky has constructed tightly cut percussive sequences into varying loops, forming an 2'33 audio-visual composition. The footage was shot around Sydney and the Shoalhaven region from October 2013 to January, 2014. The work contributes to the canon of art music or sound art and its histories, whilst wryly debasing popular music. This video was exhibited at the National Gallery of Victoria for my survey show Nostalgia for Obsolete Futures in 2014.
