Jane Cassidy - Visual Music Piece
Jane Cassidy's visual music piece "The Night After I Kicked it" is a stunningly beautiful well structured visual music composition. Jane composed the visuals and music.  Having watched closely as Jane composed this piece, it was really a pleasure to see and hear this wonderful work unfold over a period of months. I love this piece. It is now on vimeo - but to see it in full quality with surround sound audio is the best way to experience this piece. However for its visual music genius, great to watch on vimeo.

This animation film, without words, is designed to expose the power of the cinematic medium, and to illustrate the abstract nature of time. -- DESCRIPTION FROM THE NATIONAL FILM BOARD OF CANADA website url: More information on the filmmaker on the NFB website

Silk Chroma - Visual Music Piece
I was lucky to be involved in the creation of the visual music visuals for a collaborative work entitled "Silk Chroma". Working as a collaborative team to create this work was a wonderful experience. The Irish composer Linda Buckley was a pleasure to work with and the electro-acoustic composition that she composed is beautiful. Linda and I worked closely together to realise the ideas for the work, interestingly Linda described much of the music she would like to create in visual terms that really appealed to me and inspired the visuals. Similarly some visuals and still images that I created inspired sounds and timbres for Linda. Good stuff. Silk Chroma is an audio-visual work that is inspired by the novella Silk by Alessandro Baricco as a conceptual f…
