blue is an experimental collaboration between artists Shawn Feeney and officerfishdumplings. To create the work they decided three elements: a duration of 30 minutes, a rhythmic relationship of 3:2 (Feeney’s piece is at 135bpm and officerfishdumplings’s is at 90bpm) and a theme (the color blue). Also, an image was generated by an mp3 player’s visual plug-in to function as a graphic score.
After setting these guidelines they worked independently, Feeney in New Zealand and officerfishdumplings in the USA.
On completion, their respective mono components were spliced into a stereo composition, creating an interplay of synchronicities and fluctuations of dominance. Shawn Feeney lives here.
