A few years back I had a go at making animations myself using GIMP. It followed the format of taking frames and joining them all together to create an animation. I first experimented with this by taking screenshots from videos. Even for a simple few seconds of animation I was using 30+ frames. I hope to expand on what I learnt from this and use those skills in my current animation process.
I want to convey my ideas of confusion and abstract through my animation. The most obvious way of this is through line pattern, shape and colour. I want to add vary speeds of motion through the designs relating to different areas of the music, like when the music is very upbeat and messy the patterns will be very busy and chaotic. Listening to Free Jazz Part 1, to me, sounds very unorganised and pointless as if there was no structure or form to the music. It’s just a clash of instruments played at random and is very hard to try and interpret. Although it’s difficult to understand this piece of music it is quite easy to create a visual to display this sense of haphazard.
