Trio is a multiscreen installation of abstract digital images, each a visual echo of a distinct three-note chord from a string trio score by the first-generation minimalist composer Tom Johnson. Each of the notes in the 49-note musical scale are represented by a unique color and rectangular shape, known mathematically as straight polyominoes. Emerging from a dynamic spatial relation that couples the movement of the notes in the score to the direction of the shapes and the image transparency, the visual compositions of the Trio installation appear to be architectonic and malleable, one gently flowing into the next.

At once directly related to the music notation while operating in their own realm as a series of digital paintings, Galbraith’s installation continues a body of work exploring alternative relationships between sound and image enabled by his custom software that works across media boundaries to form a new audiovisual composition environment.
