Artist Statement:


The gestures of a cello player with his bow on the belly of a cello are described as line strokes in this animation. All the lines are synchronized
to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Suite No. 2 in D minor. The lines grow and move to the rhythm and create visual metaphors for the melody. What makes this animation a treat for the eyes and ears is the impeccable timing of the abstract elements with the music. In the end, what remains on the screen is the idea of a cello with four strings.
