Taking inspiration from the Dada art I has seen I began to make my own word based sound drawing.
I stared with a watercolor background made up of a mix of muted colours. I chose these because
the sounds are soft like the de-saturated tones; the mix of sounds created by my noisemaker
is represented in the range of colours. I went with watercolours because of the way they blend
and the soft look have. This references the way the my sounds fade in
and out and work together.
The words I used came from listening to my noisemaker ad picking out the main sounds
I heard I then tried to write them in a way that showed how much variety one sound had
(change in size/direction/spacing etc..). I kept the lines fluid and random as that’s how I interpret
my sound, the lines of words also come in at random some times out from
different lines this indicates the introduction of a new strand being activated.
Compositionally I kept the writing small on the page, as the sounds I create don’t really fill the
space so I wanted to show that. I also wanted some strands to flow out further as my sounds
seem to travel, as they are high pitch and metallic sounding.
I also wanted to include the dashed lines as to me it’s a visual representation of my
noisemaker – a whole lot of small clinks coming together to make something much bigger.
