Looking Back – Way Back

At the end of the .com bust I realized that a complete life re-think was in order.  So instead of confronting the daunting task straight on, I ask myself what single question in life did I want to answer.  Now, some might take this opportunity to find the answer to world peace… but instead I ask “what is the connection between art and music?”

I spent the next 3 years building “Visual Synthesizer”, and I created a mapping language between the two art forms: color, pattern, line, perspective, shadowing, speed, view… mapping to pitch, rhythm, phrase, tempo, instrumentation…   Here is a video I created toward the end of this project.
