about

Hearing tones and chords as he painted, the father of abstract art, Kandinsky theorised that, for example, yellow is the colour of middle-C on a piano, a brassy trumpet blast; black is the colour of closure and the ends of things; and that combinations and associations of colors produce vibrational frequencies akin to chords played on a piano.

Inversely thereto, Aluviana uses sounds of contemporary life i.e. 'sounds of the time', to compose an aural painting. And from the very early tones onwards, the picture painted in oil, slowly unfolds. The oil drop trail gradually reveals reasons for religious discrimination, recession, growing mass poverty, international debt, depopulation bombs, global inequality deepening socio-economic divisions etc. of today, before finally becoming a trail of blood.

However, tender Neo-classical strings adventurously intercept the industrial ambience buildup of this 10-minute, single track EP, reminding that while the worst is yet to be seen, it is the mankind's - rather than the artist's responsibility - to complete the painting.

Kandinsky would be pleased.
