scale versus proportion...


...:::...i am interested lately in thoughts about scale and proportion...about how one thing relates to the next...and about how things interact and change meaning through proximity...

recently i have been working on a project that has brought context to this distinction. but rather than describe the quantifiables in a laundry-list fashion, i think better to talk about it's translations...across a tilting plane of meaning (remember? i slide around on it in my socked-feet)...

proportion can be a factor of scale, where as one dimension increases, so the others do equally. but what i am more interested in is the feeling of these relationships...of knowing when the balance is right, even if it appears asymmetrical...a lead ball next to a helium-filled balloon...

and sequencing sounds, i think, is very much about proportion...about how placing one song next to another can shift it's weight...about how it is less the length or tone or melody, and more how these elements create a dialog, press against one another into new shapes and forms...about how they build a new and wonderful wall-less room around you through testing their constant movement, adjusting the teeter and the wobble that comes not from looking for a happy medium, but from getting a little lost sometimes so that you can learn new boundary conditions...
