Spheres is an absolutely gorgeous, hypnotic abstract music video by Regis Hervagault:
42000 HD frames at 50p for a duration of 14 minutes, this is my own little space opera inspired by the teachings from Anaxagoras of Clazomenae. philosophy.gr/presocratics/anaxagoras.htm
Using a variety of software including open source tools and custom scripting, i designed a mesmerizing spaceball choregraphy to evoke atoms, DNA, seeds, spirals, fractals, etc…
The first draft screened as a backdrop for the robotic and live music performance by URBAN ORCHESTRA at the city council during the new year celebration in 2008 meeting critical acclaim.
Here’s the final director’s cut with an updated soundtrack and tighter edits to fit my original vision.
This reminds me of the amazing pairing of Ron Fricke and synthesist Micheal Stearns on movies like Chronos, except here, abstract images are used.
