Description

Unseen beings interact with our world. Some of them create and some destroy. They bring messages from the beyond. Fairies, angels, and generally inorganic life lies behind the scene in our reality. The video uses Processing to generate fields of random distribution of small, graphic elements. Vegas was used to filter this growing imagery and zoom in on different parts of the creation. The music was composed of short samples of metallic ringing sounds produced by tapping on metal speaker stands. These sounds were warped and transformed in Spear, the spectral analysis software. They were then mixed and processed in Cakewalk. Behind the scenes, angels, fairies, and inorganic beings of various kinds work behind the scenes in our reality. Some work for light and some work for dark. Just because one cannot see them does not mean that they don’t exist. Consciousness is what is real and the physical world is a fa├žade for what lies underneath.
