The process of "artistic perception" (Schklovski) is similar to that of peering into the darkness. While your eyes get accustomed to the darkness, objects' shapes appear in space. We give these objects the characteristics, which permit us to keep ourselves within a comfortable, acceptable system. In such conditions we recreate our own worlds from scratch. These new-born worlds will vary depending on the individual holdings, experience, preferences and expectations.
In Negative modulations the maximally formalized material represents the negative of a musical tissue. Thus - as in photography - the process of performance can be defined as negative (transformation (or modulation) of a hidden image into a visible one, i.e. the negative), while the process of perception, as a positive one (transformation of a negative image into a positive one).
The video (originally interactive), in its turn, represents a parallel process: counterpoint of abstract visual images/events/impressions forming an autonomous scale.
