XK studio Goes “Out” With Composer Matthew Wilcock in New Motion Installation

XK studio explores the idea of graphical music notation in this mesmerizing and spectacularly detailed wrap-around CG motion work for UK producer/composer/sound designer Matthew Wilcock installed at Outernet London.

Alexa Sirbu and Lukas Vojir at XK studio in London: “‘Out’ is taken from the album It Can Only Change which originated from Matthew’s distant encounter with the 2020 Beirut explosion in the form of voice message from a friend during the accident.

“The installation is an impressionistic graphic score which explores the themes of the album through experimental computer-generated imagery and material explorations driven and influenced by the music.

“We were fascinated by the idea of ‘graphic notation’ and through an extensive design process, thoroughly examined how we can give it materiality, tactility, and movement using the medium of CG and VFX.”
