I have watched the documentary once again after seeing it on a screening session on 201. I was listening what he is saying on diversity of art and its living through the interaction.
He wanted to take music away from being abstract collection of sounds. He wanted to make them like places that you have been to. To make it sound like a place that you have experienced before. He used to call them “imaginary landscapes”.
Later in his creative work he was carrying with his motto which is “going to the extreme and retrieve back to a useful position. What was understood as artistic behaviour was to go to the extreme and to defend it and occupy it. For Brian it is not the most interesting place to be. I t is interesting that somebody has been there, and you want to know what he saw there. He wants to know all about the bandry conditions and they influence me because they allow for some things that are possible. Like having a space in a piece of music.
Variety of art
He was saying some interesting thing about the natural organisms. And I realized that :All of them are so different and the variety of creatures is enormous. And all of them were created through the same forces: wind, light, fire and soil.
His another think thought was about the Pollock painting and if you would see another one that is exactly the same, that would be surprising as the fist one was made through chaotic strokes but the second one would have to be done very precisely with a one hair brush.
Context makes it different each time it’s approached
Film music is a full fill for the action. It is there to support the action, and the action is missing when you just listen to it on a record. It’s just a context without action, When you just hear the soundtrack without seeing the action, it allows you to construct your own picture.
Technology makes variety
He wants to put some serious attention when he is making a music. The think about the machines is that instead of reproducing something again and again perfectly we use them to produce something different again and again. We use then to generate variety rather then fixing something in place.
Interaction with a viewer
He likes systems that make use of the brain. The watchers brain is a process of emotions and of art being not a quality of things but the name of a type of interaction between you and something or you and a event. If you start thinking about interaction. If freezes a lot of aesthetic problems. You don’t have to decide if something is or is not an art. All you have to know is whether it does to some people. and it can do it as a hit single for two and a half million people a month or a cathedral may do it for seven hundred people for seven hundred years.
