Sound Drawing – Jody Graham & Mark Cauvin

A collaboration to create real-time performances of visual sound, presented by the two as installation art accompanied by exhibits of drawings, paintings, and artist tools.

Mark and Jody use both mark-making and sound-making tools, with Mark deploying digital and analogue technology as media to create and record the work and to enhance the perceived connection between the drawing and the sound.

In a spirit of call-and-response, Jody expresses the time, extent, and volume of Mark’s sound in layers with gradients of colour, tone and materials. Thus the storyline and flow of her marks articulate a progression from foreground to background and return, and allows a concertina effect of shifting leads between artist and musician.

This performance in real time moves beyond conventional music graphic notation, where scores are predetermined prior to performance and time/duration has already been prescribed, and becomes the art in itself recorded digitally as well as drawn on paper.

Mirroring Layers - Jody Graham and Mark Cauvin

If all this sounds a bit wanky, that’s a real risk. And so it is to the two performers’ artistic credit that there is genuine substance to their collaboration.
