NO studies is a series of pieces dealing with several representations and sonifications of the word NO. The present piece takes as departure point the sound analysis of a person screaming the word “NO”, whose video recording is also used (frame by frame) in the video version of the piece.
The analysis is recomposed into two layers: as an insistent repetition (73x) in normal speed and as a slow motion sound that develops over the whole piece as a sympathetic resonance after every repetition. Together with these two ongoing elements, there are also several interruptions, “negations” of the presented logic.
