Opus IV | Walter Ruttmann & _blank

"Opus IV" is a digital reinterpretation of the 1925 homonymous film by Walter Ruttmann.

The video file is the original film by Ruttmann (on the Public Domain) downloaded from archive. The sound was generated from the video frames. Even it could be considered a sonification work, or even a generative work, the audio files and the image files are exactly the same, you hear what you see. The process of creation consisted on saving all the 7.755 frames from the original film first as .raw and then as .aiff.

Lissajous

Lissajous is a complex audio/video signal generator built in Max/MSP and inspired by the work of Jules Antoine Lissajous.

The media project is born with the purpose of investigating the relationship between sound and vision, chaos and order, closely related to astronomy, mathematics & physics. It explores the field of harmony and disorder and let the user dip into an elegant, dreamlike, minimalistic yet chaotic space which reflects the complex rules of the universe in all its abstract beauty.

Projectors | Martin Messier

Martin Messier's Projectors is a surgical work of art in which he orchestrates the engineering, manipulation and distortion of 8mm projectors under the lights of a digital projector. Through a tight stage lighting and the resynthesis of the 8mm projectors’ quasi-mythical roar, the machines come alive outside of the projection room and turn into bizarre and explosive noise mechanisms.
