Check out these beautiful visual interpretations of the music from “Selbstgespräche”

Britzpetermann and the musician Karlo Jurina teamed up together to launch this incredible project for the launch of Karlo’s debut album, “Selbstgespräche” which means “internal dialogue.”  What is this project you might ask? A simple answer with an incredibly complex description. Britzpetermann created a visual interpretation that reacts and changes its properties to match the track’s waveform, note by note.  Not only are the visuals really soothing to watch, but the entire album is comprised of really beautiful and bright guitar-like acoustic melodies. I emphasize the like because the sounds you’re hearing were actually recorded from an iPad! This is how Britzpetermann explained the process:

Basis of this interpretation is a constant grid consisting of 190 coincidental symbols. The music itself modifies the grid. This impulse changes size, position and symbols itselves whereby new structures and pictures occure. Every moment is unique. We decided to play single signs by hand which not just distributes a handmade touch to the digital character of interpretation but also a precise possibility to control visualization. As control input we used the iPad as the multitouch surface allowed very intuitively flowing movements. The final signs to this project were played by Karlo Jurina itself, so he could decide on his own how his songs are supposed to appear visually.

You can watch the video below to take a look at how these guys created these stunning visual animations by using their iPads. Brilliant!!!


Not the typical campaign strategy…

… For a candidate that’s not so “typical.”  In less than 24hrs, we got more than 7 pages of comments and more than 1600 views. At the end of the first day, there were over 12,500 views, and it keeps getting more. While each comment has clearly made the effort and time spent worthwhile, this video wasn’t created to achieve praise. We created it to spread the word and to get his story out there.  Ron Paul: The Only One We Can Trust

Most people don’t know who he really is or what he stands for as a candidate running for President in 2012. More importantly, they don’t know that his views have never wavered in his 30-years of being a politician. That alone separates him and what makes him a-typical from the others.

Please view and share this with as many NON Ron Paul fans you can find. Not trying to preach to the choir… but to educate and inform those who don’t know his (and the other candidates’) history. Thanks!!!

MODA Exhibit Piece

This was one of my exhibit pieces created for MODA (Museum of Design Atlanta). It features a branch that’s over 30yrs old – which was brought back from Tokyo by my teacher. She, of course, lent this to me temporarily for this event. It reminds me of a skater or ballerina being hoisted up by her partner.
