"Beneath" is about reminiscences, which are pictured as patterns, forms and shapes. This audiovisual piece was an attempt to show memories that we remember like bubbles resurfacing, like echoes. This short audiovisual clip was extracted from "Beneath (Lie Her Echoes)", a former collaboration between Nicolas Bernhardt & Charles Al. Picasso.
At first, we tried Nicolas and I. to create a longer film with a different music soundscape. Nicolas suggested different elements to be created and generated according to specific mystical pictures and macrocosmic images. We finally dropped most of them because we could not leverage the rendering at a sufficient aesthetic level. We lacked the practice, knowledge and time to model and render what he had storyboarded... But we kept some visuals whose movement and transformation seemed OK to us, like the voronoï sphere/sun. Eventually, we created a first version, which has not been released for now.
Then, i forked the project later and created a new score, exploiting only the first real-time glsl shader as a visual. It became this version of Beneath.
