This collaborative and international project crosses disciplines to create a time-based experience where drawing and sound form the basis of a relational exchange. Traditional notions of authorship are challenged through the translation of the gestural mark into both durational sonic impressions of the drawn surface and incidental sounds of mark making.These two methods of Sonic Drawing are employed to encourage the participatory response of visitors to the installation space. The incidental sounds of participants drawing actions mingle with durational sounds that are generated live by custom electronics in concert with graphite drawings to create a space of responsive co-creation. Through this intervention, the activation of the exhibition space serves to influence the participants’ perception and interpretation of the sonic gesture.
