about

For music competition www.ArtRocks.nl we decided to transform Piet Mondriaan's 'Composition 10 in Black & White' into a song. Our approach: What if we let the painting trigger all sounds? We devided the painting, also called 'Pier and Ocean', into separate blocks, and used the horizontal and vertical lines as midi triggers in @Ableton. The pier provided the melodic lines. The kick we distracted from the heart of the painting, the snare's on the left, the hihats on top, some white noise from the right... The wildest part of the ocean triggers the percussion. The vocal melodies and synth lines we took from both sides of the pier.

more math:
Composition 10 = 85cm high, our track: 85bpm
Composition 10 = 108cm wide, our track: 108bars
total duration = 306 seconds, the same number as the periphery of the ellipse in centimeters

lyrics

OFFSHORE
a song inspired by the painting 'Composition 10 in black and white' by Piet Mondriaan


I'm gazing
beyond the
pen stripes
thin lines
two strokes
make a cross
offshore
suggestions
drawn like
a hole
the purpose
intensions
come and
leave
a portrait
in landscape
wave
by wave

break a wave
break a wave
break a wave, break a wave
drown me

low tide
far sight
pur-
blind
pier
and ocean
hazy
hazy
the flood line
vague
ebb and flow
follow
the moonlight
drawn like
a hole

break a wave
break a wave
break a wave, break a wave
submerge me
break a wave, break a wave
drown me
