Multidimensional Research

Recordings 1980 and Beyond

“Adi Newton has long since described the process of making music as his research.It represents a more thoughtful and reflective body of work than that which dominates his peer group. In particular, Newton’s grasp of the philosophical connotations of technology placed him apart from the majority of its practitioners.” NME.COM First For Music News..

Adi Newton began his life long involvement with Sound via Painting and through a theatre Project which began his involvement with the electronic Trio The Future from which he founded ClockDVA and TAGC / The Anti Group both of which are increasingly considered as one of the pre eminent pioneers of 80’s experimental music.The CDVA acclaimed albums include the 1988 electronic masterpiece BURIED DREAMS & the 1980 electro acoustic THIRST While TAGC can site the Meontogical Research Recording series and the Ambisonic landmark Digitaria as much appraised and influential works.

“Burning Water”, develops new forms of visual expression.. Inspired by the use of multiple montage techniques employed by Kenneth Anger. Each image in the film is taken from specific occult areas,

symbols and images, and up to quintuple exposures of the film i.e. five montage-levels then computer software was used to treat the entire edited film and finally achieved the results, with a film which relates directly to the subconscious levels of the mind, a kinetic Rorschach-test, an exploration of the resurgent atavistic and sentient symbolic systems, used by Austin Osmon Spare, “Burning Water” is an alchemical and technological enquiry into sub-states of being. A meontological visualisation beyond analytical analysis.

Burning Water 1986 / 1989.
