Esag Penninghen Graduation Project
Study on the relation between sound and image.
The main objective is to create a desire for music listening, hence the almost authoritarian title of my diploma: « press play! ».
A unification of visual arts with music : enhance vision with audition and audition with vision, and studying the interaction of both senses. Reinvent image as a tool for promoting talented new music acts.
A study based on one song of each four bands selected,
those four bands are a good illustration of how dynamic, diverse and creative the french music scene is today. Most of them are relatively unknown of the mainstream audience, and they all come from Paris.
I created quite an impersonal set used as a basis for the animation.
The set gets animated through a synchronisation with music, and gives a visual evidence of the rhythm, the sound level, its speed, volume and tone.
The fonts are exposed through a « graphic karaoke » system.
Conception, art direction and animation.
