  • Physics of the Mental
  • Genre: Experimental
  • Duration: 15 min
  • “Physics of the Mental” delves into an exploration of the inner reality of words when they refer only to themselves, to their physicality related to sound, movement and light. Language singing its own prosody, objects pronouncing their own definition, the body of words being touched and played. A glimpse into the parallels between physics and language and the intertwined behaviour of particles and words.

    Language as score, instrument and performer at the same time.


    “Taking several copies of the same word in a given language, the measure of its
    certainty blurs like the waves, liquefying a quantum ambiguity that gives it the
    character of fire: a being that is an act.”

    The study of prosody makes it possible to transcript words into music through the reinterpretation of melody and rhythm in speech and its translation to MIDI. Words play the music hidden in their own definition using the voice of the
    thing they name creating a composition in which language becomes its own score.

    [Law without words]

    The synthesis and interactions of words and sounds are explored first through an experimental instrument that allows to physically touch the sound (3D spectrograms) and second, through sonification using spectral synthesis.

    For waves and fire

    II.II. On the action and interaction of words and their virtual bodies

Violeta López

Violeta López is an interdisciplinary artist and musician working in the in-betweeness of fields with a multimedia approach that merges analog and digital, visuals, sound and words. She holds a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia and a Bachelor degree in Music in the Conservatorio Superior de Música Joaquín Rodrigo de Valencia, as well as a Master in Artistic Production, being currently finishing a Master in Visual and Multimedia Art, both at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. The broad scope of her interest has led her to the entanglement of visual and sound, of materiality and virtuality, finding connections too with a deep interest in language and literature as well as science. At the core of her work lies a poetical perspective from which she intends to free languages from their established use, looking for new ways of expressing the identity of the world and its perception.
