Abstract

Screening of a fixed-media audio-visual composition ('visual music').

Cenote Animations is a series of psychedelic experimental video artworks. Drawing inspiration from the composer’s experiences of swimming in the cenotes (natural sink holes) of Mexico, each piece is a cenote-themed visual music hallucination of aquatic life and Mayan occultism. Cenote Zaci constructs these impressions using a combination of direct animation on 8mm film, stop-motion animation and computer graphics. The sound is also a blend of digital and analogue techniques, utilising analogue synthesis, hardware effects pedals, mezcal bottles and a shinobue purchased from a flea market.
