Denouement | Mechanics of sound

The newly created duo, Denouement (aka David Shelly and Lawrence Kolasa), is working on their triptych, From Time To Time, a journey through the inner and outer reaches of sound as it interacts with the day-to-day environment. Featuring the virtuoso Treeotica stylings of David, and the subtle mixology of Lawrence this work provides an interface between a walk through the city and a journey into the labyrinthine world of the Shaman's Journey.

Glasstronomy Studios is grateful for the generous contributions of David Shelly and Lawrence Kolasa to Sensorama.

About Denouement

David Shelly is a creative curio wrapped in bubble wrap and hides in a curio cabinet. Beside him on the shelf are trace memories of his creative journey on earth. One trace artifact is a tree branch who dreamt she was a musical instrument. David came to her aid and laid her roots inside a guitar FX peddle in the sand. Years passed and one night she saw David in the forest lit by the moon light. She laid her new form on the path for him to discover. By and by, David found a purpose in his life by her spirit coming to his aid. He continues on a musical odyssey as an accidental musician.

Lawrence Kolasa is a Toronto based mathematician with an abiding fascination in musical soundscapes and their transformations. As chief mixologist at Red Light Studios in Toronto, he looks for the sound behind the sound, the sound within the sound and the sound between the sounds. Presently he divides his time between an ever evolving uncovering of the interplay between mathematics and music and surreptitious soundscape design.
