The Man Ray Metronomic Society

This piece was written for Disquiet Junto Project 0267: The Metronomic Society.

Man Ray was known for his Dadaist images, photograms (he called them rayographs), and solarized prints (more properly refered to as the Sabattier effect). In the evolution of art does the progression of the artform follow the technique or is the technique a natural outgrowth of the art’s progression?

The Man Ray Metronomic Society, offering a display of the artist’s work, placed three of his prints together, Le Violon d’Ingres (Dadaist), Dora Maar (solarized print), and Kiki Drinking (rayograph), and needed music to view the three prints. This is scored for double string quartet and percussion (cymbals, wood blocks, tubular bells and vibraphone).
