As a follow-up to the previous post, here’s a link to a low resolution animation test on my Vimeo channel:
I am planning on doing a series of animations using Baroque organ music as the background, more news to follow.
I am currently working on a collaborative piece based upon the French composer and organist Jehan Alain’s seminal piece – Litanies.
I first heard this piece in 2013 during a tour with Simon Brett and a choir at Exeter Cathedral, UK. I have heard it a few times since then and have subsequently felt inspired to work on an animation based upon this piece.
The piece, composed in 1939 in the atonal style, is influenced on a train journey and later dedicated to one of Alain’s sisters who died tragically in a climbing accident not soon after the piece was created.
The self-similar repetition of the musical phrases lends itself to the reiteration of a visual fractal, hence my interest and keenness to work with this piece.
Simon Brett played Litanies as the finale to his organ recital at Dunblane Cathedral in July 2015 – the recording of this is the audio soundtrack to my project. My thanks to Simon and everyone up there for this.
I have been working Mandelbulber and have tonight found some amazing images:
The ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community Altered Books Digital Interventions exhibition is now online! This exhibition includes a couple of images from my Jabberwocky series
The images will also be included in a showreel at the 2015 SIGGRAPH conference this August at the LA Conference Center, USA.
Here’s the stills for the Jabberwocky
I’m in the throes of learning the Jabberwocky’s words backwards. As Alice read the book by looking at its reflection in the mirror, I am trying to get the same audio effect by reciting the poem backwards, then reversing it. I remember a similar technique done through David Lynch’s Twin Peaks character The Man From Another Place.
