Digital Prologue Recordings and Musical Accompaniment
Creative revision processes may derive properties from tangible sources to the intangible. Moving from the concrete, the abstract audio recording produced digitally [electronically] may be theoretically framed as a digital incarnation. The handwritten words of the lyric pages are spoken and digitally recorded. Transitioning from traditionally a physical experience to digital/electronic is represented through the musical selections for the collection. Genres described are fluid and meant to direct the reader to specific resources. Reflective of the collection’s spirit, the musical library includes seemingly contradictory choices: Like the style of 60s folk (ex. Buffy Sainte-Marie, Mamma Cass) along with electronic [instrumentation] (ex. Ellie Goulding, Darren Hayes, Patrick Wolf). Particularly, folk is representative of the physical experience for creative work. Since folk is traditionally performed but has been digitally recorded, the style’s transition to digital mimics that of the manuscripts pages onto the digital collection. From creation to playing the music, electronic instrumentation represents the digital experience of music.
As discussed through out the RRVIWRD Creative Revision Process exhibit, the prologue is the opener. Particularly for the audio, the prologue is an introduction. The digital process exemplified by the prologue’s electronic instrumentation and the recorded voice speaking words paves the way for the following [works].
As the audio recording of the Prologue may be related to the handwritten pages, the disembodied voice in the audio may be related to the video. The audio is part of the video, but the video encompasses moving images not part of the audio recording. Images of milk being poured
