CORY ARCANGEL
Paganini Caprice No. 5 | New York | 2011 | 3m 41s
projection from a digital source | color | sound


In Cory Arcangel's video Paganini Caprice No. 5 (2011), the artist "remakes" Paganini's Violin Caprice no. 5, known for its speed and the high level of virtuosity it requires from its player. Arcangel's project reconstructs every single note of Paganini's Caprice from YouTube videos of people playing heavy metal guitar. The artwork is a product demonstration of Arcangel's Gould Pro software—named after the pianist Glenn Gould (1932–1982). The artist wrote the software for making a series of videos that recreate well-known classical, atonal, or baroque compositions out of notes from YouTube videos at a faster speed than commercial editing programs would allow—so fast in fact, that the product could be seen as a critique of itself.

 

Cory Arcangel’s work crosses a range of media, including computer-generated projects, performance, video, installation, music composition, sculpture, and print media. Arcangel (b. 1978) is best known for his Internet interventions, and modified video games. His recent solo exhibition Cory Arcangel: Pro Tools was shown at the Whitney Museum (New York), as well as being included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
