La Création du Monde
Take 90 animators and a modernist composer and what do you get? Something very much like the video above. The arts and animation students (old and new) and their instructors were asked to listen to Darius Milhaud’s La Création du Monde, one of the composer’s signature pieces and come up with the visuals to accompany it. The result was shown on a cinema sized screen to an appreciative audience last week with Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne playing the piece live. We can’t reproduce the size of the screen you can go large and fill your own with these amazing visuals, influenced by Oskar Fischinger who did the special effect for Fritz Lang's 1929 Woman in the Moon as well as being an important pioneer in the history of animation. They go amazingly well with Milhaud’s polyharmonic piece which combines jazz-age looseness with French sensibilities - this is something very special.
