Explorations in Visual Music

Studio Artist user Wilfried Jentzsch has been actively presenting visual music pieces at international festivals over the past few years. The image above is from the piece Widerschein des Lichtes (Ashen Light), which was commissioned by the festival Synthèse Bourges. It is based on electronic music derived from granular cross synthesis of Tibetan gong and male singing voices visualized with abstract images generated in Studio Artist.

Windspiel (The wind´s play), was presented at the Punto y Raya festival, November 6, 2011 Madrid, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. It is based on continual changes in a procedural visual structure realized using the Studio Artist MSG Evolution Editor.

Tamblingan was inspired by a walk in Bali. The synthesized images and the synthesized sounds work together to produce an evolving poetic world.

Wilfried and Hiromi Ishii have been invited to give workshops at the International Academy of Arts in Heimbach Germany next year. They hope to incorporate Studio Artist into their visual arts workshop. Students will bring their own laptops to the workshop.

Their recent visual music works generated with Studio Artist can be seen on vimeo.
