Description:


    Digital maps looping in time and in the moment. There is synchrony in the sensory horizontal and the temporal vertical, as image and audio derive from the same numeric source. Each maps the other in the moment and through time. It’s visual music in a synaesthetic counterpoint.

    Perhaps it’s abstract expressionism, true to its digital materials, founded in musical traditions and Modernist formalism. But it’s loosened a bit. It’s meant to be fun (God forbid). It’s jazz in color, shape, sound, and computation. Relax. Hear the colors. Listen with your eyes.

Software:


    Artmatic, Metasynth, After Effects Processing
