Multimedia Spotlight: Vocal Improvisation Animated

How a laptop and a highway play together, or what geometry has to do with music.

Today’s short-and-sweet is Improvisation 2 — an audiovisual experiment by multimedia artist/singer Fredo Viola, who explores the environment solely with his voice and what he sees around him.

The vocal improvisation was recorded on a laptop mic, then stunningly animated using footage from New York’s West Side Highway arranged into a mesmerizing swirl of circles and hexagons.

The video is intended to be experienced in a more interactive way that allows you to drag, drop and play with the various spinning shapes — give it a spin.
