What about the moves a individual must perform to make songs, although we have all seen visualizations of all sound-waves? What exactly Ontario artist Stephen Orlando was able to catch.
Orlando utilizes LED lights and exposures to capture a artist’s movement. He attached the lights and asked cellists and violinists to perform, turning their activities into waves of light.
“A relative motion between the performer and camera must exist for the light trails to move through the frame,” says Orlando. “I found it easier to move the camera instead of the performer. The LEDs are programmed to change color to convey a sense of time…Each photo is a single exposure and the light trails have not been manipulated in post processing.”
