Title: Musique concrète from a digital world
Technique: Multimedia, digital animation, music composition
Date: November 2009


“Musique concrète from a digital world” is an audiovisual piece. The basic idea is to translate the concept of concrete music to a digitally generated environment. Instead of using sounds produced by common elements, manipulating audio waveforms generated by audio mapping of an image of a particular element. The events correspond to the visual noise as they arise, and literary history is used to facilitate their association.

The animation is done based on analog photography techniques and image overlay filter. The aesthetic corresponds to a dream fantasy where the figure of Bosch has particular importance.
