This paper is a discussion of the composition Fluor Sonescence,
which combines trombone, electronics and video. The
trombone and electronics are a mediated sonification of the video
component. The video is a high framerate capture of the air motions
produced by sound emanating from a brass instrument. This
video material is translated into sound and serves as the final video
component. The paper begins with a description of the data collection
process and an overview of the compositional components.
This is followed by a detailed description of the composition of
the three components of Fluor Sonescence, while a discussion
of the technical and aesthetic concerns is interwoven throughout.
There is a discussion of the relationship of Fluor Sonescence
to earlier works of the composer and the capture method
for source material. The paper is an overview of a specific sonification
project that is part of a larger trajectory of work.
