Sound for Rubbena…

Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq is a British born deaf artist with a unique painting style – she came to Short Circuit with a short video clip of her painting technique wondering if it were possible to link it more to her internal world as she creates – how to make those viewing the work ‘hear’ the high pitched squeeks and whistles she experiences?

Rubbena teamed up with Jon Adams who sampled her hearing aids for a few seconds, then deconstructed the sound into thousands of parts. He has rebuilt the sounds in a number of ways, one here on the video, and others to be uploaded here later…

Have a look and listen – see what you think.
