Repetition and distortion drive this audiovisual collaboration between composer Lux Prima and visual artist Max Hattler, where fuzzy analogue music and geometric digital animation collide in an electronic feedback loop, and spawn arrays of divisional articulations in time and space.

Video Art Visions: Divisional Articulations.
Repetition and geometry play out in trance-inducing fashion.
German video artist and experimental filmmaker Max Hattler talks about his latest gambit, a collaboration with contemporary composer Lux Prima:
“This video is my visual interpretation of the fuzzy analogue loop-based music created by Lux Prima. Sound and image collide in an electronic feedback loop, spawning arrays of divisional articulations in time and space. The concept of the video borrows from Paul Klee's Bauhaus teachings and draws on visual influences ranging from Constructivist art to computer animation pioneer John Whitney's seminal film experiment Matrix III (1972).”
The film was directed by Max Hattler and animated by a team of 16 students at School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. The music was created in Lux Prima's studio in east London.
