Caméos de Lumières

Cameos of Lights is a videomusic tribute to Canadian filmmaker Norman McLaren and his visual music. For this work, I wanted to make sound-image associations by exploring various elements of synchrony. In micro-montages, I explore combinations of grains, shapes, colors, rhythms, movements, spaces and intensities. “Caprice en couleurs / Begone Dull Care”, the original work of Evelyn Lambart and Norman McLaren was my source of inspiration for Cameos of Lightss and my source of sampling. It is surprisingly vivacious and virtuoso but also offers ecstatic passages of beauty. These tension-rest poles were my conductors for the structure of the work and guided its realization.
