A video capturing the rhythm and sound of music.
Best viewed full screen in the dark.

music: K/Half Noise by Múm

created in AfterEffects and Maya using motion capture data

Process

In a previous experimentation with peer Sylvia Kosowski, I used motion capture to record my movements in a dance.  The dance was choreographed to have specific turns at endpoints so that we could link the data together (due to the limited space in the room).  From there we created two MEL scripts:  one to create polygons from the motion capture, and another to keyframe those polygons so they appeared in sequence.   We imported the data into Maya and used the polygons to form different geometries .  

The video below shows the output as well as some process photos.  I used this data in parts of my video above.
