Playing with motion graphics to visually and dynamically represent a music piece.

Music Video

In a course entirely focusing in motion graphics and dynamic typography, we looked at many examples of masters of cinema and modern dance to explore how form and motion tells a story. In this piece, our class segmented the music from Pina Bausch's dance for Lilies of the Valley, and derived our own visual interpretation of the sounds through motion graphics.

This animation is purely experimental, with heavy influence from Japanese music videos. The project was fun and light, and adds another range to my experience in dynamic media. The animation was a challenge to represent an instrumental piece of music without any typography. I challenged myself further to also create an interesting piece with just the primary shapes (line, circle, square, triangle) without any use of color, shades, or depth.

Thanks for viewing!
