Motion on Beats

Motions Graphics

This project started with the passion of syncing visuals with music. At first, the challenge was finding music that has good beats and similar to my musical taste. I chose this music because for my mind, it was easy to get the beats visualized. 

From the beginning I knew that I wanted to make my visuals based on geometric shapes. At that time ( 2014 ), I started doing some research on geometry especially sacred geometry

I was so fascinated by how geometry is implied in every piece of nature. I did great amount of research to understand geometry as profoundly as possible. At the stage when I wanted to make my a storyboard based on the music, my challenge just started. I had so many beautiful geometric shapes that I wanted to use in my video, however, simultaneously I must have had scenario that fitted my music. So I started to listen to music over and over again and to make various storyboards. 

I decided to draw my storyboard based on Platonic solids.

I came across with Platonic solids when I was studying geometry. They start with a tetrahedron and end with a icosahedron. Each of these 3-dimensional shapes completes the last one. I used this geometric theory as a basis of my storyboard. 

After I finished my storyboard I started to make the motion.I used After Effects and some plugins like plexus to make this. I enjoyed the process very much and also loved the result despite some imperfections that it had.
