In 2002 Melvin contributed as artist, curator and co-ordinator of project 4/4. 4/4 took the form of a site- specific, multi-disciplined project produced for the Mackintosh Museum at the Glasgow School of Art. This space was both the venue and inspiration acting as both subject and site for the development of an evolving creative process. The main intention of this process was to open up the possibilities for a unique form of collaboration between contemporary musicians and visual artists. The process involved four elements : Space, Composition, Video and Live Performance.
4/4 investigates the inspiration for the making of music and video and attempts to articulate how they can operate together, where neither is subsidiary to the other. In constructing a process where architecture feeds music, music feeds video, and video inspires live musical improvisation, the aim of 4/4 was to expose and become the product of the separate stages of it’s own development.
The clip you see here is an excerpt from the video Melvin produced in response to the musical work composed by Adam Melvin, made in reaction to the architecture of the Mackintosh Museum.
