Wind Game is an abstract digital audiovisual composition. The structure is based on lines constructing circles or segments of circles. The most important transformations were produced by either compression or stretching. Fast rotations changing directions and colors, give this geometric figure its energetic properties.
The noise of rainstick and an high percussiv sound of crotale modified by filtering program by the author supports the visual part.
