This is another video experiment into perceptions of time and space in music and moving imagery, this time incorporating the track ‘Vapour Trails’ from the Sounds of In-Between album. This was interesting to see how many ways I could take some innocuous imagery of clouds and treat them in a way where perception could be challenged. Clouds are already conducive to imaginative thought (remember the game many of us played as children, trying to identify something in the tufts of condensed vapour). Hopefully the new soundtrack, in which I already had in mind arcs of vapour trails criss-crossing the sky, enhances this experience – enjoy.
Another experimental video, this time incorporating a piece from Sounds Of In-Between, ‘Persistence of Memory‘ (the title borrowed from the famous Salvador Dali painting, replete with melting clocks – the constant bells in the music seemed both apt and persistent). This footage was shot and edited together as part of my recent experiments into perceptions of time and space, and previously had no soundtrack, but now it does – the flickering sunlight seems to perfectly match a sense of past evocations, like faint scratches, a palimpsest of a past lives. That’s my take on it anyway… enjoy.
This is a piece of music I’ve recently set vision to (rather than the other way around) as an example of spatio-temporal ‘suspension’, both musically and visually. It took somewhat longer than I would have anticipated (rendering video in Adobe Premier seem to take eons with the effects I’ve been applying) but I’m quite pleased with the results – hope you enjoy it too.
