Analog Rytm Encounter of the Third Kind

Subsonic thunder slips across the virgin wheat field. An alien aural vessel blinks and growls as the new day dawns. Before long the greenery will dance to the odd rhythms that are resonating across the southern farmlands. A dance that won’t end until the sun sets for winter solstice.

And then the dance dies.


Workflow

Early morning photography excursion followed by initial Lightroom editing. The Analog Rytm drum machine is filmed on green screen to be composited with the photographs. Music is composed by recording heavily spring reverberated sounds on a modular synth which is then combined with the analog drum synthesis of the pictured drum machine. Adobe Premiere is used to composite and edit the full cinemagraph to the music recorded.
