Anne Katrine Senstadʼs site-specific video and sound projection installation Kinesthesia for Saint Brigid examines the phenomenology of light, color, sound, ocular perceptionsand spatial relations in dialogue with the deconsecrated church, St Brigid in Ottawa, Canada.The installation piece is meditative, pulsating and hypnotic in its investigation of the sensorial andexperiential.As such, Thirlwellʼs score corresponds with the journey of pure light and color projections andfrequential wavelengths in the former cathedral space. Thirlwellʼs composition careens betweensoft plucked interludes to musiq concrete visions to cinematic mind fields, with a meticulous marriage of samples and live instruments, distressed sounds of mysterious unknown quantities.
