The Creative Relay
Sergey used the principle of creative relay as the main artistic tool for this project, with the sound directors creating small narrative audio sketches, which were passed on to the motion designers. The basis for this piece is a voice recording of the poem 'Let me come inland always' by Mary Lavin, performed by Cathy Belton. With the help of an algorithm, the poem generates a real visual wave based on the dynamics of sound vibrations from the audio track.
In the context of the visual narrative and my author’s idea, the poet stands on the bank of the Grand Canal and reads her poem, while the waves of her rolling voice spread over the water’s surface.
