This is the second of two videos I’ve submitted for consideration to the 2013 Fractalforums.com Annual Fractal Art Competition. All totaled, this animation took about a year to render and edit. Hope you enjoy it.
Please note that the music volume jumps from very quiet, to very loud about a minute and twenty seconds in.
Well, it’s been about three months since I got gently dumped off of Posterous due to their acquisition by Twitter. It’s been a slow adventure since then trying to relocate the blog to another site, but lo and behold – here we are! Big thanks my good friend Michael for generously hosting the revamped site for free! Yippee!
Did you know that the first 9 notes of Beethoven’s beautiful Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor (WoO 59 and Bia 515) for solo piano, commonly known as “Für Elise“, were actually copyrighted in November, 2003? A Dutch trademark agency named ShieldMark won the exclusive rights to the first nine notes claiming it was a test case to determine “whether it was possible to register sounds as trademarks. The judgment in the Für Elise case of 27 November 2003 is clear on the subject and now constitutes applicable law in the entire European Union.”
Well, here is my third animation based on the “Amazing Surface” formula.
“A Tonal Triptych” expands on the landscape introduced in my original Surface video and presents one video with three very distinct audio experiences. The first dark, pad-heavy audio segment was created by me using FL Studio. The following segments highlight pieces by Kevin MacLeod (“Industrial Revolution” and “Vanes“). As in previous videos, all sound effects were provided by the graciousness of my kitchen utensils.
