Soressa Gardner - Composition C (No.III) with Red, Yellow and Blue 1935.jpg

First, prepare the canvas with a layer of white: the twisting of cylindrical wooden box lid and the crumpling of plastic bags infused with a sprinkling of ambient electronic fairy dust. Between colours, the black lines are drawn by various sweeping electronics, relative in duration to the length of the lines on canvas. Occasionally the artist is heard fumbling in the paint box for the right brush. Bells and gongs—clean and granulated—plus a crinkling of tinfoil represent red. Yellow is a playful trumpet. Imaginary underwater sounds invoke blue. The work concludes with a few final touchups to the white.
