Inspired by the film Sunshine (Boyle, 2007), the movements that make up the Solar Flare piece evokes the vastness of space exploration, as well as the intimacy of mankind within it. Movements: A1-SolarFlare | B1-StillTransmitting | B2-EvenWhenImGone.
The opening movement bends and modulates as the craft travels through space and time, perpetually moving forward and pushing through to explore further until signals and mechanisms are fried by a local solar explosion. The second and third movements tell the story of the aftermath. Drifting through the void with no control and without the ability to distinguish past and future, and no sign of home. Sending out final signals with the hope that somebody will pick up on them, to have one last human connection
The collaboration for this project consisted in the creation of the visual layer using videos of visual synthesizers taken from Woody Vasulka's projects were mixed and multiplied. Producing a contrast between them that resulted on a visual language that is directly related to the gestures that occur in the sound part.
