This work was built up from a single dot. Generative variations derived from duch dot and developed in Modul8. The images were edited and layered in Final Cut.
The goal of this little experimental work was to generate the maximum possible expression from the minimal information, with the corresponding starring of silence and darkness.


Designed at the same time as the video track (I work on the audio and video tracks as if they were two sides of the same coin). The composition is based on "Bars & tone" (pure sound and color tones to adjust the signal). A play with Time and the said tones, and the silence between them. The second part was developed in Ableton Live from the sounds in part 1.
