This collaboration with Clare Ghigo tackles the 'silent' bits of the first and eleventh movements of the Stabat Mater by Boccherini in an audio visual film. Focusing on these peripheral rivets as inspired by elements from the Noh theatre, the artists have captured the rests as well as the breathing pauses of the performed score accompanied by the corresponding colour according the closest wavelength of both colour and sound. A separate digital artwork also maps these moments of rest, their corresponding colour and duration within the whole piece.

The resonant color of light that is 40 octaves above an F#4 at standard pitch A4=440 has a frequency of 406.81 THz. This color has a wavelength of 736.93 nm. The equivalent RGB colors (shown above) that approximate this color of light are #750000, based on a modified version of Dan Bruton's color approximation algorithm.
