Soundtranslation is a student project. The idea was to translate music into visual language. Musical emotions, spontaneous reactions and flexibility should also transcend into form and movement. “Slazenger 77” by Sauber+Flanelli is based on eight acoustic elements. They are alternatively combined and create interesting variations. Each of the eight elements correspond to specific movement and form. I combined these elements according to the music.
This project was my first try with animation and I got fascinated by the additional dimension of time.
