audiovisual experiment

Watch behind the scenes video: 


Music producer: Daniel Lagerqvist

Visuals: Anastasia Novikova


One rainy Monday morning Daniel and I went for a little walk around our neighborhood to capture some footage of everyday life in Willesden. How could a broken bike, a puddle or ashes on the ground turn into music? Take a look at Daniel’s process of creating sounds from his associations with the video - that is how! During our experiment we were exploring the correlation of two creative practices: filmmaking and music production through the aspect of layering. We see this project as an example of how these two media forms can influence each other while remaining independent unlike the relationship of music and moving image in music video production or sound design for films.
