Seeing this video take form suggested to me what it might have felt like for Michelangelo to paint the Sistine Chapel - the brightly colored figurations emerging from his black and white drawings; the rectangular symmetry of the ceiling; the stained glass windows of the chapel; the immersive sense of perspective as he painted by hand on a vastly expansive surface; and perhaps a sense of ecstatic vertigo while painting at such heights. The whole sensory experience for him can only have been one of profound awe. This video is my attempt to convey some of this sensation.
I used an animated custom Matter object and reflected the resulting video clips both horizontally and vertically in LumaFusion. So, the effect is somewhat kaleidoscopic as the animated objects recede and advance to suggest the depth of perspective in his painted ceiling. I brought the color in from black and white to suggest his figures coming to life as he applied paint to his outlined shapes.
I used about six different audio clips of LayR - each of them an arpeggiated preset. I tuned the arpeggiated notes based around an approximately common key/scale/mode. But I left the arpeggiation tempo alone - I did not give the individual clips the same tempo. The result is a kind of Steve Reich, trance feel as the melodies come in and out of the soundstage. I applied some AD480 reverb and PhaseDelayArray audio effect to set the six LayR clips in the same spatial field.
I hope you enjoy watching and listening!
