Sketch with Line and Tonal Palindrome | Jonathan Gillie

This is another sketch from around 1999-2000 recently remade. Listening to the music of Eleh has re-ignited an interest in pure electronic sound. As with 'Circles' I was interested in working with the simplest of images and tones. The initial horizontal panning lines are reworked and positioned to move in reverse, from top to bottom then diagonally until unintentional patterns are formed. The soundtrack is taken from a fading test tone which pitch is increased by two semi tones every new line. It was a suprise that even though line and tone are linked, at points during the film they seem to bear no relationship to one another at all.
