This work represents random, abstract intersections of sounds, animations and videos. The design is driven by Stephen's desire to create compelling abstract video, still images, and sound that will engage the viewer to explore a multi-dimensional, surreal realm of the original topics. Also, Stephen wants to engage the viewer in the making of the art by showing a visual representation of the mixing and randomizing processes that result in a continually changing output that never repeats. The helter-skelter, abstract character of the output video is very dependent on the input sound and animation videos; and the effects variables in the mixing software. Very different abstract works can be created by changing the mixing ingredients and tweaking the control "knobs." The availability of incredible modular synthesis tools enables the translation of his creative ideas to compelling art works. The "brushes and palettes" for this work are hardware and software synthesizers, Moog 32 and Max7, respectively. Part of his inspiration for this work was the Aurora Festival: The Art of Light, Video and Sound. This festival included many variations on the theme described above.
