An abstract HD colorfield film created in After Effects. The soundtrack is an improvisation for lapsteel guitar processed with Kyma. (I strongly encourage you to watch the HD version if at all possible - the re-compression in the smaller default version limits the subtlety of the colors.)
"Pneuma" is based on growth patterns generated by celluar automata software, processed in Adobe After Effects to create constantly changing structures ranging from the crystalline to the architectural. The soundtrack is a live improvisation on the Buchla 200e analog modular synthesizer, controlled by the Haken Audio Continuum Fingerboard fretless keyboard controller. This HD version was rendered in May, 2008.
Warning: "Pneuma" displays an intense, periodic flicker pattern that some may find uncomfortable. Those subject to seizures should not view this film.
Dreamwood is a wordless poem of a single line. The original SD version was created in 2002, and was nominated for Best Soundtrack at the 2003 International Festival of Cinema and Technology in New York. I re-rendered it in HD in 2008.
The soundtrack is a live performance for electric guitar with computer processing. The imagery is dogwood blossoms in the sun, shot at my home in the Spring of 2002, and processed in Adobe After Effects.
A year-long timescape of a maple tree in my backyard, assembled and processed in Adobe After Effects. The soundtrack is computer-processed bowed vibraphone, played and recorded live.
