‘Nightingale and Canary’ by Andy Thomas

Australian artist Andy Thomas specializes in creating ‘audio life forms’: beautiful abstract shapes that react to sounds. In this animated short, he visualizes two recorded bird sounds from the archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum. Read more about the technique on Andy’s website.

    Brilliant. I think Oskar Fischinger would hardily approve.

    • Christian Bermejo

      Yes, bloody brilliant.

    I liked the second one, the canary, but didn’t care much for the first. Still, he’s a very talented artist and I’m stunned by the art I’ve seen on his website. The tree series is brilliant.
