      Prix Ars Electronica 2014, Honorary Mention. Awarded at Multivision 2014 for "The Best Music Interpretation". Official Selection at Siggraph Asia 2014, Clermont-Ferrand, Ann Arbor, Anima Mundi, Encounters, Giffoni, Trickfilm, European Film Festival of Lille, OIAF / LAIKA's salon des refusés, Animatou, Message to Man, Tous Courts / Motion +, Giraf, Future Shorts, Videoformes, ArtFutura... Light Motif is conceived as a synaesthetic experience based on a visual transposition of Music for 18 Musicians – Section II, by the American composer Steve Reich. The ambition of the film is to cinematically capture the extraordinary life force that animates this essential work of contemporary music by offering a truly hypnotic experience where music can be “seen”. The inspiration for the project stems from the relationship between music and the visual arts, illustrated by artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Oskar Fischinger, Norman McLaren or John Whitney. These works try to establish precise connections between sounds, shapes, colors and movements, to visually translate the concepts of rhythm, melody, harmony, pitch, timbre and intensity. Light Motif proposes applying the construction principles of Steve Reich’s compositions to visual language. Rigorously architected, his compositions are based on the repetition of short melodic patterns subjected to the gradual processes of dephasing, lengthening pattern, rhythmic saturation and tonal changes. The result of these subtle variations in the repetitions is a sound texture in constant transformation. The listener passes progressively from a polyphonic perception to a global perception, from the perception of a discontinuous sound phenomenon to a continuous one. In Light Motif it is this perceptual phenomenon that is transcribed into images. Procedural generation techniques are used to transpose the motifs and compositional processes into a semi-abstract visual form made of colored lights and geometric shapes. Light Motif explores the possibilities of synergy between music and image through a subjective experience that can speak directly to the subconscious of the viewer.

ABOUT Tendril is a relatively young studio and we are always looking for ways to experiment with the brand and its possibilities.We hope you enjoy this sound-synchronized logo reconstruction sequence. If you have seen our 2011 Showreel, you may recognize some of the animation, which was intercut there to form a visual backbone for the edit. Once the animation was complete, we sought out the musical wizardry of John Black who initially worked to find a tempo that worked with the flow of the visuals, and then gradually built up the final track in layers, adding sound design elements to synchronize with the different geometric elements.

            A bromantic love letter to three of our cultural heroes as a way of celebrating Richard Williamʼs 80th, Ivor Cutlerʼs 90th and Norman McLarenʼs would-be centennial birthday. Ojari and Please have this to say: 'We choose to animate a monkey, and do the other things. Not because they are easy, but because they are hard. Because that goal will serve to organise and measure the best of our energies and skills. Because that challenge is one we are willing to accept. One we are unwilling to postpone. And one we intend to win.' Review here on Skwigly: http://www.skwigly.co.uk/thejollydot/
