Maria’s work is centred around improvisation and also uses sound to explore our relationship with landscapes, encouraging the re-evaluation of mundane or familiar spaces through soundwalks, maps and field recordings. She performs with Slum of Legs, The Academy of Sun and solo under the moniker YOU&TH and is a collaborator in the Brighton improv scene.
PWM is a video installation which uses movement and prime numbers as compositional tools to capture the moment of invention. Created from film and audio recordings taken during an improvisation event, four televisions each play a different looped film of augmented video and music. The films are 2, 3, 5 and 7 minutes long – the first four prime numbers – creating a changing audio-visual experience which does not repeat for 210 minutes.
