Clinker’s “On the Other Side…” explores Cohen’s continued romance with the light and dark inside our human experience. An audio-visual “deep listening” environment which draws from the vast depths of emotion written into the words and music of Leonard Cohen.
The lush bass tones of Cohen’s voice provide a point of departure for our journey inside Clinker’s cinema of sound and light. Drawing from years of experience in creating and manipulating music and audio, Clinker deconstructs and reassembles Cohen’s voice into surreal “bass-scapes” using his unique and sophisticated system of analogue and digital electronics. Clinker’s creation will bathe the audience in an array of Cohen’s “golden” vocal chords augmented with a connection between sonic and visual details. Specially designed sub-sonic sound frequencies (created from Cohen’s voice itself) reinforce the experience of extreme sound-movement through the body.
On the Other Side… was originally commissioned by the 2008 International Leonard Cohen Festival and appropriates Cohen’s words and bass voice as a departure point into a deep listening audio-visual experience. The piece was also featured at the Banff Centre’s BNMI Interactive Screen 2008 and was considered to be one of the highlights of the 2008 New Media summit.
