Year Made: 2021

Dr Svetlana Rudenko is a highly talented and regard concert pianist, who collaborates with several artists for her music concerts.  Svetlana invited me to create a visual music animation video that incorporated a video of a performance of Svetlana performing Liszt and explored synaesthesia and art ideas.


The brief was to also animate several paintings by the artist Timothy  B. Layden and include a musicological analysis of the music by Svetlana based on her knowledge of the piece and her own experience of performing it.  ThePremiere of the video performance was held during  Brain Awareness Week 2021.
