Opal and Omonia Video are two visual variations of the musical work Omonia. Displaying more or less untouched nature, and being occupied with the topics of transition, variation and the cyclic, the videos are in all aspects woven into the same structure as the musical piece they are made for.
Opal is the first of two video pieces constituting the visual part of the assembled work of Omonia.
Exhibiting a grape sized revolving opal, the video enrolls itself in the musical piece's wickerwork of ideas about variation, transition and cyclism.
As a mirroration of the musical work's special affection for acoustic instruments and an organic, body-like style of elasticicm and cyclism in way of expression as well as of compositional structure, the video brings forth the ideas of Omonia in a visual form.
The video wishes for its viewers to experience how the opal is holding within a while world; a world which scintillates in a wealth of nuances, and which is constantly undergoing change, as the stone is showing itself from different angles, and as the light around it is changes.
This was, the video is illustration the at the same time cyclic and expansive movements of body, mind and nature.
Both Omonia videos are made as a collab between Line and her brother, Thomas Gøttsche Dyrholm.
Omonia Video is second of two video pieces constituting the visual part of the assembled work of Omonia.
This video, following the music of Omonia from its beginning to its end, is a documentation of a summer sunset in the Danish nature reserve Dollerup Bakker.
In the video, the eye of the camera gazes at the same scenery for all Omonia’s 28 minutes.
By virtue of its slow lingering manners, the video should allure its viewers’ own inner landscapes to flourish.
So, during the video, the viewer might undergo a change, just as the landscape is.
Or it might be that something unexpected happens inside, just as it does around the middle of the video.
In any event, by the end of the video the Dollerup Bakker scenery has changed; and yet still it's the same.
This is how the video suggests a visual variation of the musical work’s preoccupation repetition, transition and variation in landscapes and mindscapes.
