 “(Video synthesizer is) a device that would enable us to shape the TV canvas as precisely as Leonardo as freely as Picasso as colorfully as Renoir as profoundly as Mondrian as violently as Pollack and as lyrically as Jasper Johns.” (Nam June Paik)In the manifesto for Paik-Abe Video Synthesizer, we saw Nam June Paik’s world which causes cracks in the strong canon. It would be Paik’s attitude of turning his artwork using contemporary technology into the classics of the next generation. Poetic Canon applies AI-based text-voice conversion technology and produces three- dimensional spatial sound beyond the space between two ears that appreciate the stereo sound. Now, we look at Paik in those days, who made fractures in the world, breaking away from the classics. In our time, Paik is another canon, and we call him ‘Poetic Canon.’

“(비디오 신디사이저는) TV라는 캔버스를 레오나르도만큼 정밀하게, 피카소만큼 자유롭게, 르누아르처럼 화려하게, 몬드리안처럼 심오하게, 폴록처럼 격렬하게, 그리고 재스퍼 존스처럼 서정적이게 만들 수 있게 해주는 장치다.”(백남준)

〈백-아베 비디오 신디사이저〉를 위한 선언문에서 우리는 견고한 정본에 균열을 만드는 백남준의 세계를 보았다. 그것은 동시대의 기술을 활용한 작품으로 다음 세대의 고전을 만드는 그의 태도일 것이다. 〈포에틱 캐논〉에서는 AI를 활용한 텍스트- 음성 변환 기술을 활용하고, 스테레오라는 소리를 감상하는 두 귀 사이의 공간을 넘어서는 입체적인 공간 음향을 연출한다. 그리고 고전으로부터 벗어나 세계의 균열을 만들던 당시의 백남준을 바라본다. 지금 우리의 시대에서 백남준은 또 다른 정본이며, 우리는 그를 “포에틱 캐논”이라 부르고 싶다.

COMPOSITION CONCEPT NOTE:  All over <poetic canon>, the abstract idea of the phenomenon in visible and invisible motivations spatial modulation, as "spatial delay," stands the central music composition concept. The outside captured image illustrates its distortion of dimensions and banding layers.
