Wide Quietness


Pierre Tremblay’s short film Wide Quietness uses multiple moving images simultaneously, creating a kaleidoscope-like effect. All of the footage is of Pierre swimming in outdoor, geothermal-heated Icelandic pools. My electroacoustic work Inopa-Naipo provides the soundtrack to the film. The music was composed in 2012 by recording sounds from inside an acoustic piano and transforming them using frequency sweeps, looping, and other effects. To make some of these sounds, I ‘prepared’ the piano by muting the strings before I played, and for others I scraped and banged directly on the strings inside the piano.
