Portrait of the ghost drummer

4y ago


Exploration of graphic qualities in drums playing. Drum sticks are the extensions of drummer's hands like brush is an extension of the painter's hand. Invisible dynamics of drummer's motion creates a spatial path which is both groove and a notation. My self-developed technique sums the elements of areas such as drumming, music notation, action painting, choreography, calligraphy and 3d drawing. Tech. description : This animated drawing is a recorded motion path of drum sticks in rhythmic composition. Motion trajectory was captured by Vicon MX system, raw CSV files were translated into visual language in C4D. Thanks to David Green for tech. assistance I worked on this animation during my artistic residency at Culture Lab in Newcastle.
