Our first big project as students was the music project.
The task was to create an animated gif inspired by a musical piece.
Our first part of the brief consisted of our tutor playing several musical pies and telling us to draw what we hear.
We were given paint, charcoal, pastels and several other materials. We were told to paint and draw with our fingers and hands. The exercise was meant to help us be more expressive with our work.
For the second part, we were meant to make up to 60-80 abstract pieces inspired by 3 songs chosen by us.
We were supposed to choose specific pieces which we would use as frames for a several seconds gif.
My choice of song for the final piece was Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer
