In DITHERNOISE audiovisual performance “Wave interference patterns” sound is treated as paint on an invisible temporal canvas, the audiovisual synergy process is improvised in real time in the attempt to cause a singularity through synesthesia. Simon takes advantage of the full range of sound frequencies available, extending the low and high frequency of the sound spectrum to enhance the physical and tactile perception of sound and its proximity. Simon attempt to produce cross-modal patterns between sound and visual interaction with the intention to explore further fields of reality through the opening of a syneshtetic perceptual window. This work is inspired by neuroscience, introspective research and theories of fields. Simon approach to composition is conceptual and holistic, in opposition to a fragmented methodology of note phrases and discrete durations. Simon sees physical space as a container of energy fields, resonating modes seen as Chladni patterns within the space and also as the material substrate for fields of ideas, information and culture paralleling concept in theoretical physics, philosophy, and field theories of information. The work links Gestalt theories of perception with nested fields of acoustic waveforms and a field-based view of reality proposed through synesthesia.

The performance process can be described as “reconfiguring” the material of already constituted objects, drawing “transversal” lines across fields and media. The interaction is based in the movement of field of abstract information allowed by digitalized code mediated by computer, intuition and chances, or more correctly the intervals between them, aiming to produce a “singularity” as the outcome of cross-modal multisensory experience.

As artist Simon’s concern is in the field of mind, consciousness and theories of information in the broad sense, He proposes the artwork resulting from this project should be seen as a crystal that when struck by light disperse light energy into separate frequencies, Simon vision for this work is to dispersing information making information available in another form in the way of facilitating new discoveries.
