Beyond Transposition? An exploration of painting and the metaphysical through birdsong and Messiaen's compositions.

My practice-led interdisciplinary project examines ‘transposition’ between the auditory and the visual. My painting practice will be approached as a thinking tool, using birdsong as a vehicle to explore transposition. Painting is considered both as an object and site of encounter in relationships with the metaphysical through mediated and unmediated birdsong. Transposition will reconceptualise the painted surface; in which the transient sound of birdsong is made tangible in permanent mark-making
