A performance combining digital lines, monochromatic backgrounds and two individuals. The collaboration for ‘Sparks’ music video, between composer/producer Ralf Hildenbeutel and filmmaker Boris Seewald has created a dynamic choreography shrewdly synchronized with the music, a track from the composer’s new album, ‘Moods’.
The geometric motifs are shaped in lines, cubes, circles and appear sporadically while the two women dancers perform. The electro/classical sound is giving the tempo to the intertwined duo and extremely thin traced patterns. At some point, a hidden shape is moving under a black matte outstretched piece of fabric. The choreography is enhancing the voluptuous ballet moves of both dancers. They appear in order. Black, white and then together. The opposition of colors symbolized by the two dancers is unsettled by the lines, triangles and circles.
The music is leading the game. The staccato tempo in the beginning goes along the fast forwarded gestures of the first dancer. Possibly a few milli-seconds ahead of the choreography; the music is giving us the impression that our intuition is predicting the appearance of the geometric lines and the acceleration of the movements.
Taken apart, the 3 concepts (music, patterns and performance) wouldn’t have made any sense. Put together, they create a perfect synergy. (via The Creators Project)
