This audiovisual piece was made as a result of reading about the Triathlon. The structure of three radically different stages within one event is both intriguing and attractive (move over Modern Pentathlon). The nature of the events, one through water, one on the road with a machine and finally running presents a rich source of food for the imagination: just as the location in Hyde Park provides a wide range of colour and texture. This combination of actions and environment lends itself to rhythms loosely based around the recommended cadence of 90 to 100 rpm for the cycling stage, whilst the various audio structures range from samples taken from the natural world, to mechanistic clicks and the bass drone work with the visuals to provide an intense (and short) experience.
The BPM is 96 and it is 48 bars long all in E. The sounds come from a range of gear including (if you listen hard some old fashioned guitar feedback and the birds in my back garden). The visuals make extensive use of Processing software.
