Being

Pery Burge and I have completed a
new multimedia music video, entitled “Being”. As is true for the entire series,
I create the soundtrack, and Pery creates the visual imagery.

“Being” is very lush and
rich – full of living color and texture. And it is cosmic in the way light and the
flow of fluid forces interact. Pery’s images bring my music to life. And my music
adds an orchestral dimension to her inspiring visuals.

This is how Pery describes the
work in her Chronoscapes blog:

Tullio’s music has a relaxed, meditative quality, which made me think of new
ways of expressing links between the cosmos and life forms here on earth. I
could see connections between new planets and cellular life forms coming into
existence, and wanted to express the slow, inexorable quality of this birth
process – a gradual unfolding of events.
The whirling galaxies that recur throughout the video are analogous to a
kind of ‘wheel of life’, and we see similarities of pattern and form at all
scales.

Pery’s visuals were generated
during her tenure as artist in residence in the Thermofluids Lab in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and
Physical Sciences, at the University of Exeter in the UK. I make this music using
a combination of acoustic and electronic instruments and audio software. We
have been sharing files and building the multimedia works through a series of
file transfers and Internet communications.

We
hope you enjoy “Being”.

One response to “Being

    As I watched this video and listened to the music I became relaxed and at the same time I was suddenly entranced by the swirling colors. I began to recall a childhood memory that had been kept in storage by my brain for many years. I was taken back to a day in sunny California when my neighbor washed his car and I watched as the steady stream of water and soap suds flowed from his driveway down to the street. As the mix of water and soap came down the driveway it mixed with the oil that had leaked from my neighbor’s car. The mix of water, soap, oil and the California sun created a beautiful array of colors and shapes. I am not sure if this was the intention of the video but I believe that people are different and this video will affect people in different ways. Perhaps, the video was meant to help people relax or evoke some sort of feeling and if that’s the case then it worked because by recalling that childhood memory I am now in a good mood. Thank You.
