After completing the series of music tracks that comprise our Northeastern album, we pressed on and created this small group of animated projects in direct response. We selected a small portion of each of the selected songs to animate to and let the music lead the work. The driving horns of “Moonbase” push us through geometrically rendered ether, “Incredibly Frustrating” places us midway through the pages of a childrens book where outerwear narrates with pictures alone, and “Peacefield” has us moving from earth to space following a glass sculpture like a modern day Maltese Falcon.
