Ikù Batà - audiovisual composition based on Batà drums

 
 

Ikù Batà is music video based on the of afro-cuban percussion/performance of folkloric Batà drums. The kinetic energy extracted from the bodies of each musicians is used to generate and control the visual progression. The relationships between complex rhythmic patterns are thus highlighted through a multi layered movement-image mapping. The audiovisual plays around the idea of alignment  and dis-alignment of sound and image. This to stimulated an ambiguous perception of the media involved in the art work.
