SYN-Phon ( Graphic notation) from candas sisman on Vimeo.

Graphical notation and composition by Candas Sisman
Barabás Lőrinc: Trumpet
Ölveti Mátyás: Cello
Candas Sisman: Electronics and Objects

Budapest Art Factory (BAF) is pleased to present to you SYN-Phon; sound performance based on graphical notation by Candaş Şişman featuring Barabás Lőrinc & Ölveti Mátyás. Candaş Şişman resided at BAF for the month of June as part of its cross-cultural fertilization residency program. SYN-Phon will be exhibited to act, as a visual linguistic delivery through a cogitation segment followed by the sound performance on June 29th.

Coming about to understand the human nature of comprehending linguistics is that of a complex take –on. The constituent elements of language, in general content, bring forward the theory of other minds sharing, with intentioned communication.

Thought varies with the use and absence of language that comes to be found in line with the development of thinking and impulses from our daily surrounding. Eventually language creates our point of view just as much as our ideas and perception of matters, individualistically.

Art plays a crucial role in demolishing the boarders of our comprehension our mindset is framed into by literate language. Human language serves as a rather conservative form of communication when comparison to musical language; where the freedom of space employs as a resort for that broad horizon of that, that in search of cutting-edge form of broadcast.

Candas’s trials of combing various forms don’t necessarily imply the mere creation of a pioneering flash but rather the use of the endless possibilities in associating the known and unknown. Through the unknown, we come about with a new way of thinking that tries to substitute and make space for a new tool of self-expression. Conclusively the graphical notation gives liberate opportunity in creating one’s personal language that holds its basis on feeling the visual and sound in parallel.

Phonation, in accordance to Candas is the presence of sound language in SYN- Phon where the structure is supported by the synthesis itself. Music in its myriad forms extends to exploiting a communicative human language, thereby making the conceptual idea much more of significant importance than the actual tool. For Candas the presence of music in positively charged negatives spaces is a key element for substitution of the unknown seeking to be expressed. By the happening of SYN-Phon the line of musician will be crossed into a rather freely inflicted composer. Lőrinc and Mátyás as the musical inputs , on trumpet and cello respectively, of the performance will attain free expression
rightfully to the impulses in line of creating a new language.

SYN-Phon sound performance will demonstrate an articulation based on Candas’s intimate collective findings of Budapest during the month of June. Buda and Pest in the separate geographical allocation hold different quintessence natures, in addition to the anecdote of recent flooding events of Duna the performance is meant to reach out to the audience as a sensual expressive language. The sound performance will include sounds, constructed and picked up in Budapest recorded by Candas himself.
The whole bulk graphical notation will be available in print form to be part of the introductory assimilation.

Citius, Altius, Fortius from Felix Deimann on Vimeo.

My thesis, the experimental animation „Citius, Altius, Fortius“ (Latin for „Faster, Higher, Stronger“- the Olympic motto) explores the interplay of abstract shapes and motions.
How can the substance of motion be visualized. What degree of abstraction allows a communication with the viewer.
Therefor movements of famous Olympians where digitalised into 3D through motion tracking and rotoscoping of original footage of Olympic competitions. Camera motions and playback speed of the footage were borrowed and the movements of the athletes were recreated frame by frame.
The specific character of each sport is reflected in the visual language and the illustration of its motions.

Nightingale and Canary from Andy Thomas on Vimeo.

Australian artist Andy Thomas specializes in creating ‘audio life forms’: beautiful abstract shapes that react to sounds. In this animated short, he visualizes two recorded bird sounds from the archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision [] in Hilversum.

An increasing amount of sounds and images from European archives, museums and libraries are available for creative re-use. For the Europeana Creative Challenge, we’re looking for innovative projects that use archival material available via Europeana ( in a creative way. Send in your own idea to create, for example, a mash-up, an app or a game at ecreativechallenges2014.istart…. The winner will be aided by specialized professionals in realizing their project.

The deadline for submissions is August 28, 2014.

Adobe Logo Remix vs GMUNK from GMUNK on Vimeo.

For many years Adobe has worked with designers in the community in the creation of their identities, each bringing their own unique style and allowing Adobe to curate an amazing body of work to represent their brand.. For this project, Adobe was seeking visionary artists who embody a multi-disciplinary approach to creativity that is unique—maximizing Adobe’s products both creatively and intellectually, traditionally and non-traditionally.

As such, Adobe invited GMUNK to participate in their Logo Remix project. The goal was to provide Adobe with an intriguing version of their logo, and interpreted in and reflective of the munkoStylez. The brand was a locked configuration, but the canvas was wide open and Munko and his crew at VT Pro Design certainly intended to play.

Shit Showreels Say from Peter Quinn on Vimeo.

I love showreels, and make sure to watch a few every morning with my first coffee. Noticing my own reel was insanely out-of-date got me thinking about reels in general. Here are a few of the obvious 2D and 3D showreel tropes I could think of (and am guilty of, too) mashed together into one almighty anti-showreel!
Enjoy & share - cheers guys!

"A visual metaphor of the positive and negative aspects of humanity, and its path on Earth."

Official website:


“This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.” - TS ELLIOTT

Transience reflects the condition of every being in the universe seen through a sensitive, intellectual or even felt experience.
Even further, what humanity can’t describe, touch or identify is also linked to the same vanishing flow.
As big can be atoms or minuscule the stars, it’s all about sequences, pace, sudden apparitions or slow decay.
Humanity seems to have a unique potential in this constant struggle between life and entropy.
Whether our aptitudes help us prevail and evolve or instead accelerates our doom we have yet to decide.
That hesitation would come to an end with self-annihilation, but an end may just be a transition, a transformation.


Structured in a pseudo-timeline, the film is visually bringing a balance of positive and negative aspects in humanity. Slow or fast paced scenes, soft nature or hard concrete environments are shown as global human experience.
Initially a personal practice to bring mental concepts to life, this movie is achieved by two individuals, Julien Vanhoenacker as writer/director/VFX artist and Nicolas Vitte as music composer.
A great deal of computing power is needed to generate CGI images and the availability of the renderfarm of The Post Bangkok is a chance that allows this film to exist.
Creating these visual metaphors is a lengthy process spanning over many months. This allows ideas to be refined and become stronger in time, but also requires organisation, endurance and perfectionism, as well as the ability to stay focused on the initial intention.
