Finnishness, macro-insights, extreme pigmentation, water motion, a distortion of the natural, delicate
Thinking about Vladislav Delay's music, which I listen to for more than 10 years brought first colors to my mind. I was thinking of monochrome paintings such as Yves Klein's or Gerhard Richter's. But with the new Kuopio material investigating some high speed techno, I needed movement. Some hectic, speedy, dynamic action.
Since a lot of Delay's music derives from his "Finnishness" (is what I think) including a lot of space and nature, I started to film things which move around us. From waterfalls, to Shinkansen to ants on their hills, I made tiny video loops out of those movements. While I was developing a MAX patch for visualization of my own music and calligraphy with Sue.C and the Berlin code artist Lars Ullrich, I started to feed those loops into the program and gained these interesting patterns. This video is not a music video rather a preview of a live visualization while the musical impulse, speed, volume and dynamic influences the projection. This video is only a demonstration of this possibility.
