Water and Concrete is a collaborative project between composer Daniel Wiesmayr, producer Alex Ives (aka SPECIMENS) and photographer Lucie Rox.
The three photographs were taken from Lucie’s ‘Greyhounds’ series, shot during a recent trip to America. Alex and Daniel created their own audio interpretations of the images, taking influence from the composition, dynamics and conceptual suggestions that each photograph conjured. Having produced individual tracks for the first two images, they worked together on the third image – ‘Water and Concrete’ – bringing together their distinctive styles to create a collaborative musical soundscape. The three audio reinterpretations, accompanied by the photographs taken at Lake Michigan in Chicago and in South Baltimore, are an introduction to the trio’s forthcoming audio-visual project, which will be released as a photobook and accompanying 10” lathe cut vinyl.
