LA CRÉATION DU MONDE
Projects: Over the course of ten consecutive days, students, staff and alumni of BA (Hons) Computer Animation Arts, Rochester, UK were challenged to produce synesthetic digital paintings in response to Darius Milhaud’s La création du monde. They were asked to respond freely and subjectively to what they heard – to visualize their auditory first impressions with enthusiasm and impunity; to give colour, texture, shape, and form to the shifting moods and rhythms of Milhaud’s jazz inspired composition. The resulting 'speed paintings' were then animated and edited to the music of the La Création du Monde ready for live screenings alongside a series of orchestras across Europe. This challenge was undertaken in partnership with ACT (A Common Territory) and ONE (Orchestra Network for Europe). Live Performances - 2013: Amiens, France / 2014: Anchorage, Alaska / 2015: Abbville, France / 2015: Hirson, France / 2016: Zilina, Slovakia / 2016: Katowice, Poland
