Here’s a couple of test renders – animation 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.
And has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Here’s some experiments using Mandelbulber, a program developed by Krzyszof MARCZAK:
I’m exhibiting laser cut relief prints and a Laser printer/laser cut combo print, all derived from fractal images.
Here’s the stills for the Jabberwocky
