This is the promotional video for the the track Tam by the very talented LJ Kruzer.
Before working on this piece, I spent a lot of time listening to the track and album as I really wanted to immerse myself in the subtlety of the music and create a video that reflected my own emotional response.
Visual concepts developed as a response to repeat listening. I was then inspired to develop a new technique using expressions in After Effects. This technique allows me to create markers in the audio track which can influence pretty much any effect or property of the visuals.
There was an element of experimentation in what I was doing and although I was able to control, tweak and steer the piece, there was always an element of surprise. This became a really interesting process as I was able to let the visuals begin to take their own direction as they responded to the structure and nuances of the track.
'Tam’ is taken from LJ Kruzer’s second album, ‘Manhood And Electronics’ released Summer 2009 on Uncharted Audio.
