Live visual performance at the Dom tower in Utrecht.
We were commissioned to make specific content for a carillon piece composed by Rene Uijlenhoet. This piece was played live on the Dom but contained parts that were pre-recorded at other carillons in Europe. We traveled with the composer to shoot this additional video material, for the performance.
The project started with brainstorming between the composer, musicians, the client and our Born Digital team. In the production phase we worked closely together. We reviewed the musical score while keeping a free approach to the visual content we were recording in short time-spans at various locations. The process continued in the editing studio where we made video loops and sequences. The client was always involved, helping in international dialogues and location management, but always respected our creative skills and improvisation.
