This audiovisual composition was composed in memory of my old colleague who was a specialist of marine acoustic and the SONAR system.

It was inspired by the activities of underwater livings.

A small object develops in Fractal method, overlaps to produce its shadowed and light planes/parts to structure various figures. 


The music and the visual part were composed in parallel by the same author. The material sounds are mainly processed from an underwater recording. The difference between the acoustic of underwater and that of in the air was deliberately designed to structure the climax.
