After I managed to get my tech back up and running, I went back to some time-lapse screen recordings. After seeing what Hitoshi is able to do with a little editing and using his music, it seems like this is going to be the direction we continue in.
Things are developing into more concrete themes. Hitoshi sent me a demo sound. It suits the mood I am in, as i think about recent world events. this track seems to express a wide range of emotions, and makes me think of a storm coming in… and eventually clearing.
I guess I was thinking about peace being restored.
We’ve been doing this tossing idea back and forth exercise on a daily basis, Will’s response to my pieces of music has always been amazing. I use Soundcloud (online audio distribution platform) as my playground/showcase and whenever I create music, I upload it as demo then Will can listen to it too.
Once Will finishes his drawing and making time-lapse visuals based off of my demo, he sends it to me and I make a movie with my music. Making a movie and lining up music and visuals are quite fun. First, I created a couple of movies putting carefully edited visuals alongside music but also, I tried to improvise music along the visuals. This short movies shows my impromptu finger drum along Will’s time-lapse sketch. Enjoy it!
