Abstract Reaction

Abstract Reaction from Mehdi Hadi on Vimeo.

experimental project called Abstract Reaction. It’s about style and exploration of different representations of a spherical form. By using different methods and textures (Particles,liquid,smoke etc) I tried to make every representation unique with its own dynamic and animation in an abstract way, without losing a round shape. My goal was to see how far I could go with a simple concept and I came up with 50? but for ediTing purposes and in order to stay dynamic, I preferred to show only 21 ( however I will showt the others in a breadown or a tutorial) Thank you and I hope that you’ll enjoy it

Howler Monkey by Meier & Erdmann

Howler Monkey by Meier & Erdmann from Víctor Doval on Vimeo.

Official videoclip for the track Howler Monkey by Meier & Erdmann Released on the Moniker Eggplant Label (monikereggplant.net). Video created by Victor Doval (produccionesluminosas.com).

The video shows a landscape created synchronously with the music. The generation of the visuals is based on the sound spectrum. The diverse frequency bands have been used to algorithmically define the visual parameters such as geometries, materials and lightings.
Through this sonic analysis and spectral decomposition each element and texture of the track has been visually processed.
The whole sequence has been created in a procedural way where the definition of every part has been based on mathematical integrations.
To manage all this data flow I worked with Processing and Blender. The Blender add-on Sverchok has been the cornerstone in the creation and transformation of the geometry.

The initial idea came from the understanding of music as a temporal journey, a changing landscape that is perceived via the ears. The track Howler Monkey written and performed by Meier & Erdmann invites the listener to travel through the subjective/individual and the abstract.
The harmonic evolution of the track is associated with a 24 hour time lapse experienced in 290 seconds. From sunrise to sunrise the video offers a dreamy trip that opens doors for contemplation and to emotions the track might evoke.

FlightLapse #1 – MilkyWay

FlightLapse #01 – MilkyWay from SkyProduction on Vimeo.

Flying through the night, while the world beneath us is at sleep, is a pretty common thing as a longhaul pilot. Late evening departures lead to far distant destinations like Singapore, Hong Kong, Sao Paolo or J’burg. Depending on the direction of the flight the crew and the passengers either have a short night up ahead if flying eastbound or almost eternal darkness if headed westwards.
