File under — video

Transcendental Etude No.5 scans through numerous Youtube clips searching for a specific aural quality. Irrespective of the video footage the clips are then played at quickening speed collaging their sound to create a rendition of Franz List’s fifth etude, Feux Follets.

Presented at Grand Union, Birmingham as part of ‘Virtual Space/Digital Trace’, alongside works by David Raymond Conroy, Ed Atkins, Mark Titchner, Richard Healy, Tim Dixon, Trisha Baga and William Rounce. This video could be thought about in relation to music, noise, the internet and YouTube.
