Music in Motion

11/2019 Solo Project Motion Graphic 7 weeks

For this project we were each given a piece of music that we had to visualise. I was given 'I Was Never There' by Yann Tiersen. I listened to this song hundreds of times and made loose sketches based on what I saw when I heard this piece. For me the colours orange and red were prominent and the spike of blue illustrates shifts and anomolies in the music. I used the little tad pole guys to illustrate the drone of the accordion and the vibrating crossing strings represent the energy of the violins.

The aim of this project was to visually illustrate a song. I listened to the song hundred of times, drawing the images and movements that came into my mind with the swells and bursts of the song. I used different mediums and colours but I kept coming back to orange for the string parts and blue for the accordion and pings in the music.
