Linescape is an ongoing research into audiovisual scores and instruments, based on the visual and sonic translation of moving line patterns. A black line on a white paper is the simplest form of representation. It is capable of creating forms, images, words, measurements, music, landscapes and more. It is the line between our imagination and the world we perceive. Subtle modifications in the line bring it forth from its simple and primitive form to create different expressions. This in turn, creates different ways to experience the line.
