Bow Falls

(Water Video 2003)

2005, 27:15 min, color, sound

This interpretation of Bow Falls is a collaboration in accord with the Earthscore Notational System. This notation assumes that there are patterns in waterflow that can be communicated electronically. Paul Ryan uses handheld camerawork, slow motion, reverse motion and negative color fields to compose four movements in video. At times, the digitization of whitewater images is included in the composition. Using only non-sync sound gathered at Bow Falls, Annea Lockwood creates a sound composition that both renders waterflow patterns and engages in a play of differences with the video images.
