Environment, Behaviour, Interaction

Bjork - Mutual Core from DanielleNoir on Vimeo.

Another dramatic piece by Andrew Thomas Huang, using some similar methods and themes to Solipsist that is also on this blog. This time for Bjork's song Mutual Core. The song was part of an album about reconnection of music with nature, drawing inspiration on her homeland Iceland, hence the volcanic eruptions, tectonic plates shifting, passing across eachother and crashing together, and rich violent colours and surfaces. But this was also used as a metaphor for a human relationship and interaction (obviously a passionate one!). The album it was part of, Biophilia (the worlds first "app album"), was partly recorded on Ipad and Bjork described it as multimedia collection "encompassing music, apps, Internet, installations, and live shows".

Movement and Communication

Bottle from Kirsten Lepore on Vimeo.

A very effective piece of stop motion, showing communication between two distant beings. Brilliant use of sound design, emotion, humour, simple (ish) movement, repetition, framing/composition and pacing of ideas.
