the gossima collective (2009)3:12
the gossima collective the gossima collective is a work in 5 interlinking parts created using recordings of a 2.7 gram, 40 mm gas-filled celluloid ping pong ball. More specifically, all the material comes from a single ball as it bounces on a table. Throughout each part, the gestures used in the game of gossima become structural metaphors determining the contour, shape and overall form. In an attempt to illustrate the brittle nature of the sound of a gossima ball, coupled with the brevity of the game itself, the pervasive morphology of sounds is crisp, whilst the duration short for each section. This is the 3rd work from the suite and represents the antithesis of the dry, inharmonic textures of a ping pong ball, as pitched and resonant bell-like sounds coalesce.
