Another collaboration with the Redwood Symphony Orchestra to visualize their live performance of John Adam's "A Short Ride in a Fast Machine." This work drew inspiration from my enjoyment of side scrolling video games like Super Mario Bros. and Steampunk visual styles. The work depicts the development of an airship as it builds to flying amongst the stars. Trees, buildings, and large city skyscrapers spawn in reaction to the tight syncopated rhythms of this incredible orchestral piece. New developments to this real-time visualization system include the ability to control the visuals through a smartphone or tablet while sitting with the audience.
