Images and Sound in Motion

Here are a couple of stills from an animation I’ve been working on for the past few months. I’ve teamed up on a joint project with my friend David Bindman, an accomplished saxophonist and composer. My part of the deal is to create a visual, time-based response to one of his musical compositions. This collaborative…
