An excerpt from 'Up', an animation inspired by the architectural landscape of New York City. The music-box sounds from Radiohead's Kid A seemed to perfectly encapsulate the wonder of sprouting skyscrapers.
I shot some video one afternoon at the aquarium off the Coney Island boardwalk. The slow-moving pace of the underwater world and the fragments of light cutting through the exhibition tanks led to a short electronic score. The twinkling bells in the score are reminiscent of the meditative ringing at Buddhist temples.
