My short stay in Chiang Mai, Thailand was an audio visual feast of inspiration. Modern and ancient cultures collide in a dizzying display of colour and movement, as the people of Thailand worship the old and the new. Buddha and smartphones. Temples and designer stores.
Jupiter's largest moon has many layers, including the potential for liquid water. The sounds extracted from these radio waves are very alien.
The First Installment of "Visual Sounds of the Amazon"
I took my artwork to the next level by travelling to the Amazon rainforest to collect the sights and sounds of one of the world's most amazing jungles, with the hope of spreading awareness about its plight.
The first installment screened at "Render" festival Lima Peru. Visit the website for more details: http://espacio.fundaciontelefonica.com.pe/
Sounds recorded by Andy Thomas and Reynier Omena Junior in and around Presidente Figueiredo - State of Amazonas Brazil in 2016.
Many thanks to Ricardo Queiroz and Reynier Omena Junior for support and logistics.
I see sounds as moving shapes and colours in my imagination. Bringing these to life is the challenging part. There are many countless hours drawing sketches and testing particle effects. Some of the results are more refined and closely match my imagination than others.
These are the first in a new series of animated bird sound sculptures that I am currently creating. Echoes Part Two features bird species from multiple locations around the world. A very big thanks to Ben Mirin for his beautiful recording of a Lesser Vasa Parrot from Madagascar.
Australian artist Andy Thomas specializes in creating ‘audio life forms’: beautiful abstract shapes that react to sounds. In this animated short, he visualizes two recorded bird sounds from the archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (http://www.beeldengeluid.nl) in Hilversum.
The Nightingale & Canary video was produced to inspire creative industries professionals to submit their own projects to a Europe-wide re-use competition, organised by the Europeana Creative project [http://www.europeanacreative.eu]. All submitted projects make use of archival material available via Europeana (http://www.europeana.eu), Europe's gateway to digitized cultural heritage.
The video is part of Sound Connections, one of 5 pilots developed within the Europeana Creative project. This video was made possible with co-funding from the European Union, through the ICT Policy Support Programme as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme
