The rite of Spring: visual ambiences for live orchestra

The National Young Orchestra of Colombia is a group of quite high-level musicians that is aiming, together with the internationally reknown director AndrĂ©s Orozco Estrada, to approach classical music with loads of energy, fresh ideas and  a touch of colombian creativity. For the launch of “the Rite of Spring” (Igor Stravinsky), the director of the Project contacted me to produce a set of visual supports for the live concert.

With a huge resolution and a low Budget, the visuals support crucial moments or loop as abstract scenography. The director asked for very discrete, abstract animations. based on the original scenography paintings by Nicholas Roehrich. With just a couple of action-moments, this turned into a very light and painting-like set of visuals.

The orchestra will be on summer tour, and playing this show around Europe in 2017.
