Dance Film & Video Art Soundtracks
I am tailoring music score/soundtracks to dance films (video dance, screendance) and video art.
As a composer, I am fascinated by the connection and relation between visual-art and “transparent” form of art as music (and sound design).
I am intrigued by the relation of sound/music/beat and the human body movement. The way sound, or a character of music, affects the human motion and feelings. The precision, and yet abstract sense, music may rise and illuminate.
Along it, I find deep interest in the precision (by frames/scenes changes in milliseconds) and rich artistic liberation that the art of films allows.
I am interested in keep diving into the creative universes of video artists, directors and choreographers - to tailor a soundtrack to a film, and to affect and nourish them with my own musical palette.
I am welcoming collaborations.
Feel free to PM me.
