Entry Description

“Transformation” is an ongoing project dedicated to the conductor’s vision which radically shapes what we hear. Through a conductor's visual gestures and directions, the orchestra speaks with one voice and one idea - the mouthpiece of its senses, expressions and emotions. The conductor's vision transforms mere playing into an interpretation, and mere notes into music. I tried to capture conductors' gestures - and then to transform the image into a story, using different post production techniques and exhibiting. Thus gouache paint helped me to add colours and computer-mediated reality will help to deliver sound and information for a visitor with mobile phone and Internet access.
