Composer Turns Cars Crossing a Lamp Post on a Freeway into Complex Musical Arrangements
A new experimental video by Brazilian multimedia artist Jarbas Agnelli, "Cars on the Lanes" uses small loops from several minutes of footage of cars crossing a lamp post on a New York freeway as musical notes, that when combined together produces an original musical arrangement. "Since everything moves (from galaxies to atoms) and every moving pattern can be read as numbers or notes, then everything contains music." Agnelli explains, "When we cross this with the human spirit, and combine those patterns in a pleasant way, we have the chance to transform them in art. That's the idea behind this project."
