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.
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:
My contribution to this brilliant Heritage Lottery Funded Project.
The piece is entitled “The First Half Hour” .
It commemorates the opening minutes of the Battle of the Somme. My paternal grandfather, Private Fred Tregurtha (No. 28782) took part in this. He was one of the 11th Battalion East Lancashire Regiment, otherwise known as the ‘Accrington Pals’
