Seeing is Believing is part of an on-going collaboration between artist Kate Fahey and composer Enda Bates which seeks to explore the fallibility of images via the medium of sound and visual art.
The original large, unframed print and accompanying stereo soundtrack was first exhibited in ISSTA 2015, Ornstom House, Limerick, Ireland, Aug,13-14th, 2015 (www.issta.ie).
This particular piece began as a speculative drawing inspired by satellite imagery released after the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 that suggested the position of debris, a possible object. The drawing was scanned, magnified, digitally and hand cut into birch plywood, forming the print matrix. Simultaneously, the image was also reinterpreted as a spectrogram; and this translation of the image into sound served as the inspiration for the composition, as the physicality of the print determined the temporal and spectral structure of the sonic material, which was again further transformed in space and time.
