about

Forming intersections between interior resonant spaces and outdoor environments through durational performance, between systems and grounds brings into relief the slow and deliberate practices of lace-making with the spontaneity of live-electronic music.

between systems and grounds is a collaborative, durational performance and installation project developed by composer Paula Matthusen and visual artist Olivia Valentine that creates a feedback loop between textile construction processes and feedback-based electronic music, two generative systems that are otherwise quite different in approach.

In these sessions ambient sounds were sought out and incorporated as part of the gradual improvisation process. As a result, room resonances excited through feedback blend with momentary variations in the environment such as a summer thunderstorm, frogs singing in the distance, or the buzz of an electric fence.
