Abstract

Experiments in combinations of image and sound have the capacity to shape community memory. My film Color Organology presents a hybrid of visual and auditory stimuli; it draws inspiration from bird calls, composer Alexander Scriabin, and organology (the science of musical instruments and their classification). This method of composing has the possibility of producing more immediate and universal communication than classic linguistics, and may open new modes of human interactions and new conceptualizations of group and individual identities. Color Organology is to be presented on May 8 as part of the Cinema Studies’ Senior Showcase at the Apollo theatre.
