about

In the words of RDW:

"In chemistry, the oxidation states define the nature and the behaviour of an element. The same element could act differently depending on its state. I translated this idea to sound. A substance can change its character from harsh and strident to soft and gentle, while also staying the same. This transformation could be progressive or abrupt and always depend on a corresponding transformation of another material. The exploration of the tangible nature of sound is also part of this idea and relates with Scelsi’s definition of “spherical sound” and its third dimension.

I illustrated this idea to the Portuguese artist Pedro Tropa. He joined me in this project preparing a specific artwork that accompanies the work."
