Johann Sebastian Bach, Performed By Peter Hurford 'Toccata And Fugue In D Minor' by Optical Arts
Optical Arts direct a still life-inspired animation, set to Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.
The film was conceived loosely as a live action musical animation, reminiscent of the system used in music animation software such as Stephen Malinowski’s Music Animation Machine.
It is an exploration on the nature of time, the relentless violence of entropy and creative energy and its relationship to music itself. Domestic and pertinent objects, common in the still life genre, were sourced and used within a structure mostly defined by the music.
Beautifully striking, the drama of the music is visualised through theatrical slow-motion as items fall, smash and collide in reverse.
