Repose is part of the Colour Fields collection of works, derived from Yann Novak’s Repose and Scalar Fields projects. The works explores context, atmosphere and time through the use of purely synthesised colours and sounds.
Repose originated as an audiovisual installation which presents a monolithic sound piece comprised of purely synthetic timbres devoid of traditional compositional elements. The sound piece is accompanied by a projected field of light that continually shifts in colour, hue, and saturation. Repose is an examination of the inseparability of sound from context, and its effects on our perception of time, space and subjectivity.
