Isomorphism -part 01- is the first iteration of an evolving project that uses Alexander Goehr's Symmetry Disorders Reach (2002) for solo piano as a point of departure to explore the dialectic between video art, sound art and piano performance. 

 

Isomorphism is a project that researches symmetry: symmetry as the technique and practice for processing and re-composing pre-existing material, and as a method for combining different art forms in creating a unified artistic creation.

 

The point of departure for this project is Alexander Goehr’s Symmetry Disorders Reach (2002), a work for solo piano in which Goehr uses pre-existing works as models for composing new works, through the exploration of symmetry, and aiming at achieving transparency between past and present. Isomorphism attempts to apply these ideas within an interactive group of different art forms, and to comment on them through image and sound. Within this process, this project combines video art, sound art and piano performance, with an aim to explore the dynamics of symmetries and asymmetries, not only within the limits of one art form – as Goehr attempted – but within the device of a cross-art collaboration that follows the same ‘programmatic language’.
