Laminar pt.1is the collaborative effort of Pat Klassen (audio) and Alyssa Bornn (visual). The resulting work is a conversation in process that favours materiality in both sound and image.

Fragments of field recordings, found audio, tape loops, and slowed down instruments are taken to combine many different fidelities, planes of sound. The visual component mirrors this act of compounding. Source input from layers of transparencies is taken from flatbed scans, animated through the desktop, and then transferred from the monitor to 16mm hand-processed film. The piece favors no one input, denying the listener/viewer any easy place of rest.
